Fire chiefs and some captains in Boston make over $200k. Meanwhile, some towns have volunteer firefighters who earn $0. There's a friggin' admin at BFD that made more in OT than their actual salary. You just brought up possibly the best example of how scum politicians help scum unions make a ton of dough at my expense in a market that the government has monopolized, as evidence that we desperately need to hand over healthcare entire to the government... I'm not convinced :lol:
oh my... You screwed up firefighting too? It doesn't produce any wealth, it just reduces losses. You invest to reduce losses, not to generate something more. If the 200k man prevents more than 200k losses to society, then it is a good investment, otherwise it is stealing money.
If you give these sectors to the government, of course you risk paying more than the perfect scenario. If you hand this over to private, it will end even worse, particularly with healthcare; the only limit to what a person will pay for healthcare is basically what all they have. Therefore, the only limit to what a company can ask is just how much money the patient has. There's no market when there are no such limits.
