Re: Vets/Republicans clash with Democrats over mental healthcare

Medicaid fraud in mental health, worse if you include substance abuse services is RAMPANT. Not just in terms of false billing, but providing utterly ineffective services and care. Unfortunately, I don't have the time this morning to give this the attention it deserves, but part of the problem here ...

Re: Trump rules hospital must provide price transparency

I need an app to see which petrol stations are cheapest along my commute, and they have a big sign announcing the current price to anyone driving past.

Re: Antivaxers limited impact on Britain vaccination rate, NHS to blame

My wife did a thesis on this. 1) the rate is measured at pre-5, pre school. This is a semi-arbitrary deadline, with nearly all kids being "caught up" once they enter the school system. 2) some vaccines are cold chain required and MUST be given by a GP.
