Montana's Solution
« on: February 03, 2019, 09:18:17 AM »
I didn't know what forum to post this in so if I misplaced this article feel free to move to its appropriate place.

Although this video or article is about Montana's healthcare system it all evolves around the financial aspect. They went from $9 million-dollar deficit to a more than $100 million surplus in a short two years. All because one person brought attention to....numbers don't lie.

I'm looking forward to what Sharyl Attkisson has to report on other stories like "The Swamp".

Montana's Solution

We begin with the cost of health care. High—and still rising. The cost of medical and drug benefits is expected to rise 5% in 2019. The 6th year in a row with a 5% increase. Premiums and out-of-pocket costs for employees and dependents will average $14,800. Congress has struggled for years to fight the escalating costs— with little success. But what if the answer lies in a place they haven’t bothered to look? What if it’s right there out in the open in Big Sky country? Today’s cover story takes us to Montana where their solution came from a senior citizen with a knack for numbers. Those who took her on quickly learned they’d grabbed a tiger by the tail.


People sleep peacefully at night because there are a few tough men prepared to do violence on their behalf.

I thank you for this.  I am 44 and have wanted to retire to Montana since I was 6 (when I first saw pictures of the mountains).  Now, I want to live there tomorrow.   :thumbup:

Thanks for this. IMO health care does not scale up well. Any attempt to change anything at the fed level ends up controlled by lobyists and we get Obamacare.

Norway has 5 million people and good healthcare. MN has 5 mollion people. Let us completely control health care and could have good cheap healthcare as well.  The only solutions lie with the states

Mark Steyn noted this scale up problem years ago.  NN Taleb has written about the inability to scale up everything as well.
