In any case, it is an acknowledgement that government has a role in the health insurance crisis that we are experiencing. Get past the rhetoric, and we can actually find ways to resolve the mess.

Lil's new medicaid plan is called "capitation," which means a doctor is responsible for a certain number of medicaid patients and gets paid WHETHER HE SEES THEM OR NOT.
This is not reform. I'ts a worse system because the physicians now have no incentive at all to see these patients.

Since this DN editorial, in lauding Dan Liljenquist, mentioned HB477, it should be noted that Liljenquist originally voted for this ill-advised bill. So much for the discussion of "success stories."

The "feral cat" bill, by the time it passed the house, was a good bill. No hanging or clubbing "fluffy" from next door. OK, the senate didn't have the guts, pun intended, to pass the bill..

2011 HB477 was and is needed. It was repealed only because of a new committee with the media and public formed that looked at the current law and ended up listing many changes needed. No more obvious than now both the state democrat party and the state GOP are using Grama like a football game on the tax payer dime. So perhaps next time, the media can actually provide suggestions on how to fix a bill instead of just trying to kill it with unfair press often written by their lobbyists.

Yes, Sen. Dan Lijenquist deserves the press. He has been brilliant in solving something in Utah that is bankrupting the nation.

We still have 25% more state workers than we need.

Government Pension plans are a scam and a huge burden on taxpayers. People in the private sector do not have such plush and generous benefits. Moreover, benefits are insulated from loss, not tied into the market! It is as though the market can only go up. I wish my plan were so constructed.
