re: Poker & healthcare/poker
As a health care provider and a poker player... Umm, the government is making so many great decisions, let's add in healthcare. This is a topic so deep and ugly I don't know where to begin.
Let's put this in perspective: To do a US tax return there is a 10,000+ page document that covers all aspects of taxation. WOW. To bill Medicare...the document is over 22,000+ pages. Anyone serious about the government taking control of healthcare is foolishly ignorent about the true conditions and situation.
It is one of those great ideas that seems so practical, like going all-in preflop with AKs. But when you really look at what you are saying, you will realize that you've made a silly move.
I'm not saying things are currently screwed up...not at all. I could spit anytime anyone says 'insurance companies'. But bringing in the government to 'fix'...no way. Allow US to control poker to fund the healthcare problem... no.
