I believe it was Abraham

I believe it was Abraham Lincoln who posited, "remain silent and only be thought a fool, open your mouth and you remove all doubt". Mel, as a Rutgers graduate, I assumed you are no fool, nor are you stupid, ignorant perhaps, because all of us are since we do not know everything. The more you post however, I am beginning to have my doubts.

This from the man who does

This from the man who does know what is wrong or false with everything to a certainty.
Which we have no doubts about.

It's called "Direct Patient Care," and is growing, but very slowly as best I can tell.

Your idea, limited as it is,

Your idea, limited as it is, would work if the only ailment afflicting people was pancreatic cancer. It would also require that no one ever suffered an injury requiring medical attention of any kind. And that women stopped giving birth.

Other than than these things, what you describe is exactly how insurance should work.
