So I’m in synagogue on Saturday morning, and a friend of mine introduces me to someone he’s talking to:

David: Joshua, meet Steve
Steve: Hello, I’m Steve
Joshua: Hi, Joshua Sharf, how do you do?
Steve (slightly incredulously): You’re Josh Sharf?
Joshua (having been Joshua Sharf all his life, and thus finding it unremarkable): Eh, ye-es….
Steve: You’re the guy with all the signs!

This has happened a couple of times, with the blog, or with the radio show, or with the signs.  I’m always amazed by it.

    Since you came to my house this evening, I assume you want my input. This from one of your previous posts:

    [Medical innovation is the single, surest way of bringing down costs. ]

    There are many problems with that reasoning. You gave a flawed cell phone analogy. Cell phones are mass produced and there is a lot of competition. Medical equipment is not. Also, sometimes better technology results in higher prices. Music CDs are an example. When they first came out, they were easier and cheaper to produce, yet were more expensive than vinyl albums.

    A better way to reduce the price of medical care is to take the profit out of insurance like every other developed nation in the world. We had the opportunity to do that with a government public option, but the Democrats caved on that. There was also a proposal to limit the percentage that can be insurance overhead but Republicans would have none of that.

    The best way to reduce the cost of medical care is to vote in more Democrats so they can do good for the country. Republicans don’t care about the country. They only care about helping the wealthy.
