 How do schools, businesses, and Doctors misuse governments
to
eliminate their competition and increase your prices?

If governments, states, Democrats, Republican,
and Independents, would let people share course costs,
and not
block people from getting an accredited education,
or a wanted
job, which they all do now, (encouraged by
most professions, t
rades, and labor unions promoting
obstructive licensing to reduce
their competition,
(in their own trade or profession) by requiring irrelevant
education, delayed field
entry, unnecessary high entry costs,
and thus increase their
charges to you), all people
themselves could afford
to get an accredited education
without government help. With K-12 and college podcasts
teacher's homework and
grading would be drastically
reduced and teachers would be more rested for
their
important school teaching)


Examples of deceitful rules at all occupation levels, that also
prevent employees from starting their own business, raises
unemployment, and increasing your cost of life:

a. State law requires House painters in Massachusetts to work
for a painting company for 4 years before they can take a
rigging
test that allows them to use ladders and staging, this
can be
learned in 1 day. (This legal ruling prevents students
from competing,
earning summer money, and cheaply
painting your house.


b. Roofers in Florida must work 4 years with a contractor
(before it was no years), and prices were as low as 8 cents per
square foot) to pass a test that many roofers who worked 30
years, in other states, can't pass, and learn all types of roofing
work, instead of just the kind they want to do, (result after
legislation: prices are 3 times higher and many people learn
to
do their own roof in two hours. Of course, none of the then
existing Florida roofers had to take any test at all, and all the
finished roofs continued to be inspected after completion, as
before, indicating no need at all for prior testing.)

c. Dentists are required to have 9 years of education to do
some
procedures that Alaska, New Zealand, and many other
countries
allow with 2 years of training (with equal skill, as
research proved),
as indicated in Exterior Link http://www.
MedicalCountries.org
$1000 to $3000. U. S. root canals can
cost as little $65
dollars in India. (In fact, a few Indian dentists
do root canals for $18., as one Indian dentist told me.)

d. Automobile labor unions forced wages up to $70.

dollars per hour (including benefits), while minimum
wages were around $7 dollars per hour) thus U.S. car
manufactures could no longer compete with foreign
manufactures and we lost our car inductry.


e. U. S., and Canadian Doctors and dentists are required to
pass
tests that in many years, only 1/3 pass, and to have 4
years of
college before medical school while in most
countries students
start medical school after high school,
learn everything they need
to know, and thus get 4 more
years of practice in their lifetime as
doctors, and U.S.
technicians are prevented from doing simple
medical
procedures that the Veterans Administration, and many

other countries encourage. (All this is how they, and the
colluding
government, keep your prices high, get their treats,
and eliminate
competition from low cost sources). My father,
board certified in
2 specialties, would play golf 3 days a week
while I , at 17 years
of age, would put a green liquid in his
patients eyes, fold their
eye lid over and remove any irritating
particles from these patient
eyes, free of change. (Anyone
can do this with 2 minutes training,
and not need the 24 years
of education he had. Many other daily done
procedures are
just a simple)


f. Legislators are now protecting brick-and-mortar schools
from
competition by now requiring that school have a
campus. (What
grass are they smoking?) Total spending on
U. S. education,
from all sources, and including all levels is
about 1.13 trillion
yearly, mostly for buildings and
administration. Exterior link

http://www2.ed.gov/about/overview/fed/role.html

g. U.S. citizens are taxed to support a military industrial
complex
that consumes 6.61 times more of its dollars than
the 2nd biggest
spending nation does. (661 billion for U. S.
and 100 billion for
China). Just the cost of one air craft carrier,
5 billion
, cost the
same as 104 years of 80 bachelor degree
podcast courses).
Exterior Link
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_military_expenditures

h. Or, the U.S. Government could educate 2.8 billion English,
and Mandarin speaking people for up to 858
years with the
$41.2 billion in Pell Grants that were
scheduled to educate
only 9.6 million U.S. students for
1 year. ($41.200,000,000 /
$48 million, (1 year Pell Grant
Funds / the yearly cost of 80
bachelor degree podcast
courses = 858+ years of college


It does not always pay to put yourself, your team, your state,
your country, your religion, always
ahead of
others, and the
earth. In the end YOU lose.
Cooperation beats the hell out of
competition in this
podcast case.

I like my country as much as you do but I am not blind! Is it
any wonder U.S. prices cannot compete with other countries,
and that the U.S, is loosing most of its industries because of
these anti-competitive practices???

Organ transplantation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia http://www.reuters.com/article/2007/03/30/us-transplants-idUSL3042128920070330

Currently some organs can be created from your tissue to be
transplanted into your body. These are called autografts. 
Transplants preformed between two subjects of the same
species are called  allografts. In some villages in Pakistan
40+ percent of the residents have sold their kidneys to a
wealthy person for $2,500, and likewise in Chennai, India,
poor fishermen have sold their kidney for similar amounts,
but people in some places pay over $100,000 for transplants.
Only a
fraction of the 4 million U.S. people that die each year
are
organ donators. Frequently India, China, Philippines, Iraq, 
South Africa, Turkey and Eastern Europe are destinations
for
transplant tourists. The Iran model is often quoted  as
an
example of a successful organ transplantation
programme for a
country where the donor is paid from an
official fund. Donors and recipients, under this plan, have no
waiting time.

You could help yourself to get the body parts you need by
calling all the social and public media and suggest remedies
for the organ transplant shortage: Hospitals and Police 
stations should have truck refrigeration to store
deceased
accident victims, and be required to immediately report new
arrivals to a person whose job is to contact relatives for
approval to donate for transplants the 200 parts that are
immediately available from each death. Call radio and TV
stations, political leaders, talk programs, the social media
and help everyone get the parts they need from the yearly
4 million U.S., and  
56,597,034 million world wide deaths.
Lists are available on the Internet of email addresses for your
use. There is no rational reason for this shortage. Please do
this today!!!!


(Iranian Model of Paid and Regulated Living-Unrelated Kidney Donation,
published in 2006, in the Clinical Journal American Society of Nephrology.

If you are considering a particular hospital and doctor to do
the transplant
check for hospitals and doctors accredition on

How most GOVERNMENTS, even the Democrats and Republicans,
CREATE your high medical costs while pretending concern
The doctors, dentists, education institutions, drug
manufactures, and hospitals, give their governments
political
payoffs for eliminating competition. The
number of
participants in each of these groups are
purposely severely
limited using licensing and
regulations that prolong
expensive, irrelevant
education to create, support, and
justify their high
charges of a thousand and more $ per hour.
Meanwhile they will support legislation limiting you to $8.
per hour. You will never have low health
prices with high
component costs. (1/4 Billion is
paid to 3300 U.S. health
lobbyists, each year, to
increase your health costs), All links
are external.


1. Medical Providers--Stop the states from limiting the
supply of doctors, dentists, medical technicians and
other
medical providers, who could treat you for forty
percent of
the cost. In each state the state government,
and the state
divisions of the AMA (through licensing,
regulations, and
selective funding) determine the
number of medical
students they will allow, about

as few as 1/3 of medical
students are admitted to medical
schools. Just from
1993 to 2009 more than 424,865 U.S.
medical students
heart were broken because they were
prevented from
becoming doctors External Link:

(Research Studies from the Harvard School of Dental
Medicine
(HSDM) and many other sources show that
whether students make high or lower
scores on GPAs,
MCAT, DAT, MBDE Part 1, or PAT
will not indicate, or predict
their final degree of Clinical
Competence (whether they will
do a good job on
protecting your health). But, because
schools and
governments need a "REASON" for rejecting
students
up to 2/3 of the students are rejected by invalidly
reasoned test results, and instead of dentists being
trained
to do your dental work in 2 years, (As in
Alaska and New
Zealand and 50 other countries with
equal skill, as research
proved) dentists will be trained
for 8 to 11 years, and your
teeth will rot and many will
die because they cannot afford
the subsequent high
dental costs. To affirm or disprove
this statement do
your own 2 or 3 day "key words search"
on Google
with similar key words such as these
Does GPA and
DAT Predict Clinical Performance Among
Dental Students?


Current dental student first year enrollment is about 46%
less when compared to 1978 dental student first year
enrollment per number of U. S. persons, and medical
residencies, (the graduate training required of all doctors)
are under funded by the federal
government:  That is why
dental prices have dramatically risen in recent years and
why dentists earnings exceed many doctors ($300,000+)
http://www.etsdental.com/articles/future1.htm
This web address will show you how dentists
have increased your prices by controlling the
enrollment of dentist.  If it does not come up
in your search when you click on it, copy and
paste it in your search engine and you will get
this important information put here for
customers of dentists because it is important
that they can afford dentists and not die of
rotten teeth. Currently dentists are earning
more than many doctors and are not
affordable. I care about your health.

The reason for not going to the dentists was that it costs to
much (34%). Half of consumers (51%) who
have not been
to the dentist in five years reported
that high costs are an
important factor. Dental
specialists make over $300,000
per year, and many
people die because they cannot afford
the
corruptible caused high costs.

The restrition of supply gave physicians the highest average
income of any occupational
group.This was its purpose!!!!!

Medical Licensure by Professor Milton Friedman
http://www.fff.org/freedom/0194e.asp

Years of schooling does not determine pay scale, in a free,
just, democratic economy, but supply
and demand does.
For example, Massachusetts
has 4.3.physicians per thousand
U.S. people and Oklahoma has
1.6 this caused the income
of a
primary care physician in MA to be 120K, and the
income of a primary care physician in OK to
be 250K. There
is no difference in the work or
training, but only the results of
a limited supply!
With Massachusett's Universal Coverage,
demand
increased and the average wait by a new patient for
an appointment with an internist rose to 52
days in 2007
from 33 days in 2006, and as indicated
in
http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/05/us/05doctors.html,

and http://www.medicalcountries.org//

Especially in the Health Insurance countries, the
UK and Canada, supply is further limited. The U.K. provided
the N.H.S. while at the same time
restricting the number of
doctors to 2.45, and
.40 dentists per thousand people.
This collusive,
short supply protects high doctor/dentist
incomes under the N.H.S., and causes 6% of patients to treat
themselves, for example: pulling
their own teeth out with
pliers. Many wait 18
months for treatment and others receive
no
treatment because they cannot find or afford a provider, and
this will happen in the U.S. with
a limited supply under
Government Health Insurance.

http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/2005-03-02-doctor-shortage_x.htm

Because demand will be greatly increased. 4.1 million
Canadians are without a general practitioner, but the

Canadian Medical Association, and the government
effort
to keep supply low, increases doctors income, and
your
problems and costs.

STOP using EDUCATION AS A BARRIER TO THE ENTRY
INTO THE MEDICAL FIELD. "Barriers to Entry"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barriers_to_entry

Other than the U.S. and Canada, most countries give medical
students more High School science classes
and admit these
students directly into Medical and
Dental schools, where they
learn everything they
need to know including anatomy,
physics, chemistry,
biology, genetics, histology, calculus,
medical
diagnosis, the ethical and emotional treatment
of
patients, etc. This is true in China, India, Germany, France,
England, etc. but in the USA and Canada,
medical students
are prevented from getting 4 extra
years of learning and
practice as a doctor by the
requirement that they must
take irrelevant college
courses for 4 years before medical
school, and the
poor can't be doctors because of the high
schooling
costs.

How did this irrelevant educational diversion start? In 1910
the doctors were not making the amount of
money they
desired, and were getting more
competition than they
wanted from their own kind
and from several alternative
medical systems. Many
medical schools were poor, some
with no
dispensary, no lab, no ability for the students to see
sick patients, lots of untrained teachers, no cadavers for
anatomy class, etc. This gave the medical lobbies
an excuse
for why they needed more education in
order to "help the
public." What is needed is good
education, not more
irrelevant education. But what
was and is more important
to the medical lobbies
are the changes needed to be kept
in force to realize
the goal of high wages and status. So,
the majority of
medical schools were closed (over a 100,
especially
black and female schools), 4 more years of
irrelevant
education was added, and many medical students
were prevented from ever becoming doctors.

"Frexner Report": External links
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flexner_Report

The "Flexner Report", on page 167, explains, how the lobby
would control medical institutions and workers through the
misuse of state boards. "The state boards are the
instruments through which the reconstruction of medical
education will be largely effected. To them the graduate in
medicine applies for the license to practice. The boards
determine: 1. The preliminary educational requirements.
2. The facilities required of the medical schools. 3.
Examination of the student for licensure." To see how
doctors and the AMA control, produce, and CREATE YOUR
HIGH COST, look here:
http://www.mises.org/journals/jls/3_1/3_1_5.pdf

On pages: 76-77 how to limit production of doctors, Page 84
"wages of the educated should not be determined by
competition", Page 85 reduce the number of medical
schools and graduates, Page 88, put doctors on State Medical
Boards and in the legislatures. Index reference starting: page
104, reference # 48. How to limit the number of medical
colleges, reference # 64-In the 55th. Congress, one Senator
and nine Representatives were physicians, reference # 81
an attack of medical licensure.


In many countries medical school is free, so more students
are available.
With in-home learning of the
proper audio and
video podcasts of college
courses needed for a BS or BA
degrees, and Internet
computer testing, (with governments
crediting
courses after testing), the need for most colleges
could be eliminated, even the Phoenix types, and the cost
of a 4 year BS degree could go down to
$5. or less
http://www.podcastinternationaluniversity.org/

This is an example of a free learning tool that is a better
teacher than
you get in any college, in my opinion. Words

Many foreign students work in the U.S., and Canada. Their
training is more complete,
because these students get 4
more years of
medical practice in their lifetime. (Foreign
students will see, on average, at least 16,000 thousand
more patients, in their medical
practice, at a rate of 2 patients
per hour in the
8,000 more hours of their 4 more years of
medical work). Dental Therapists have been treating patients
for 90 years in New Zealand,
and now in 50 other countries,
and recently in
Alaska. Their 2 years of training is comparable
to the practical training dentists get for drilling and filling
teeth. At the Baylor College,
University of Dentistry,
University of
Washington it was determined that the quality
of therapists-treated teeth, in 600
procedures, on 400 patients,
was not different
from that provided by dentists, but lower
in cost.
So, why does the government force us to use, in
most states, high cost U.S., overly trained,
unaffordable
dentists? U.S. dentists charge
$1000 to $3000 for a one
hour root canal that
India Dentist do for $80. Technicians
use a finger and hand skill that could be learned in 2 weeks
by technicians.) One Indian dentist told me that there are
some Indian dentists that charge as low a $18. for a root
canal.


We Should flood the country with practitioners so that only
they that love their work will want to practice, and thus have
enough time to discover illnesses, and
not waste patients-
time waiting in offices of over-
worked, ill-tempered doctors.
Laws and constitution
are being violated? Is this unequal
treatment,
unlawful restraint of trade, etc.? This issue needs
legal study, action, and your help! World's Best Medical Care?

3. Stop preventing Medicare and the U.S.government
agencies from negotiating lower costs Drugsas low as 1/10
the price) as the VA does do, and
allow buying drugs from
Canada and other countries
at 1/3 the price, and less (As
some Senators want).

4. Eliminate High Hospital Costs--Stop the states from
preventing new hospitals from being built
because the
existing hospital competitor's, and
the colluding states say
there are already
enough hospitals. Competition is essential
to
keep cost and infection rates low, and quality high. Example:

Treatment cost for: (1) 
Average listed charge (2) Low Cost Hospital Charge
        Depression   Emphysema   Food Poisoning   Pneumonia    

(1)   $14,300          $17,300            $9,100                    $11,300
(2)   $2,600            $2,900              $2,800                    $2,100

5. Police Insurance companies to insure fair, honest treatment
to customers, health providers, and
provide some standards.

What can YOU do? This unfair government action continues
because the media, NPR, TV, BBC. radio,
magazines, and
newspapers do not report this
preferential, immoral treatment
enough. We need to
bring to the attention of the public, the
media's,
college's, and government's pandering to the
doctor's/dentist's?, school's  lobbies. The doctor's/dentist's/
colleges lobbies
, governments and media are robbing,
impoverishing, and even killing the public by their
actions,
and inactions! People and animals die
because medical
treatment is too expensive.
Actions have consequences!

Internet telephone if you wish to talk to some of your
potential providers. Put in the key words “international phone
card
.”You could buy a phone card in a local store. You will
want to notice the following of the company you choose:
How do they round the time, are there any monthly fees,
connection fees, maintenance fee, minimum usage fees,
expiration date, hidden costs, automatic recharging,
additional fees for smaller purchasers? Pay attention to the
contract terms, that the cost for calling one way is different
from calling the reverse way, that some companies are
cheaper one way but more expensive the reverse way, that
you do not have to dial a Pin Number, whether they have a
local dialing number for even lower per minute charges, etc.
After you have studied your choices you can make your
decision. Check this phone card provider and then see if
you can find a better one: External Link:

3.Pick a provider in the country of your choose, (Doctor Quality). Get
written prices. Doctors usually can not work at any hospital
and the hospital they work at
may have high infections rates
or medical
mistake rates thus if one picks a quality hospital
first and then a qualified doctor that
works at that quality
hospital one has the best
of both worlds. The number of
people in the
U. S. who die, per year, of hospital infections
or medical mistakes is about 100,000 each, or about 200,000
thousand all together, a
true yearly medical tsunami.

Visa to enter or exit most countries and to get a Visa you
must first get a Passport. Some companies claim they can
get you a Passport, at an additional charge, in one day, but
it can takes 8 weeks to get a Passport, at the lowest-cost,
and another 4 weeks to get a Visa. To learn how to get a
passport or visa, from your country, put in the key words,
“passport” or “visa” in your search engine and go on from
there. Make sure you download and fill in a passport form
from the Internet before you go anyplace to get a passport
because it is unlikely that you have remembered the answer
to all the questions asked on the form you are required to
fill out. Pay special attention to the photo requirements, as
they are very strict. For further information on-entry
requirements,
please contact the Embassy of the country
you are
going to.

Medicare Prescription Drugs: Medicare Part D, the new
outpatient drug coverage beginning on Jan.1,
2006, works
like other health insurance plans.
Medicare beneficiaries will
be able to choose from
at least two prescription drug
coverage plans.
Those plans will cover drugs for all
medically
necessary treatments, will pay for brand name
and
generic drugs, and will enable beneficiaries to get
prescriptions at a pharmacy or through mail order. The
standard drug coverage in 2006 will require
consumers to
pay a $250 deductible and a monthly
premium of about $35.
After beneficiaries pay $250,
Medicare will pay 75 percent
of a beneficiary's drug
expenses up to $2,250, with
beneficiaries paying 25
percent of the costs.-Exterior Link:

Pharmacies across the border: If you live close
to either
Canada or Mexico, you can buy
medications in either country
for a lower price.


Canada: “Canada places a limit on the price that can be
charged by the drug companies
on prescription drugs. With
those limits the
price may be half or less than what you are
paying in the U.S. That, along with the lower value of the
Canadian dollar compared to U.S.
currency makes buying
in Canada a good
value. You will need a prescription from
a
doctor in Canada, but pharmacies that routinely deal with
people from the US can
often arrange this. Many seniors
groups in
border areas are arranging bus trips north to buy
medications.”

Mail-order: “Mail-order and Internet pharmacies are
inexpensive, convenient, and
can help you save money on
drugs. But take
the normal precautions: Make sure the
pharmacy is licensed; don't order medications without a
prescription; and stay away from
foreign companies.
Medicines manufactured
in other countries are not FDA
approved, and
they may not live up to American standards.
Besides, bringing foreign pills into the country or having
them delivered to your house is
technically illegal”
