60+ Groups Demand Senate Pass Sanders Amendment to Slash ‘Out of Control’ Pentagon Budget by $74 Billion

Westlake Legal Group gjVHvqFOf0lBp1Z0h4UW2l4bdqSiPEZh_4bS9HdkCAU 60+ Groups Demand Senate Pass Sanders Amendment to Slash 'Out of Control' Pentagon Budget by $74 Billion r/politics

Our military budget is fully half of Russia’s GDP.

According to the IMF, of 186 countries with nominal GDP data, only the top 19 have a GDP higher than the US annual military budget.

This is not because all this money goes directly into funding the US military.

The companies that get these government contracts, like Lockheed Martin and Raytheon, don’t exclusively sell to the US gov. They make Billions supplying not just our allies, but literally the highest bidder.

Our government subsidizes weapons manufacturers who supply the world with its arms.

Imagine if we didn’t do this. Imagine if we cut the budget in half.

China has the next highest military budget at $261 Billion annually. If we sliced our budget in half, we would still have a budget 40% higher than China’s.

Megathread: Supreme Court strikes down Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics

Westlake Legal Group WiGFwT7Vq33EViC2TzqO4-AVVjyJWcMMt-bWrGTvVIk Megathread: Supreme Court strikes down Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics r/politics

The Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics, reasserting a commitment to abortion rights over fierce opposition from dissenting conservative justices in the first big abortion case of the Trump era.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined with his four more liberal colleagues in ruling that the law requiring doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals violates the abortion right the court first announced in the landmark Roe v. Wade decision in 1973.

In two previous abortion cases, Roberts had favored restrictions.

Americans Need Health Care. It Can’t Be Tied to Their Jobs. | The dual crises of mass unemployment and the coronavirus have laid bare a central flaw of the U.S. health care system.

Westlake Legal Group 8QoSxa2ORX663p5t-gXOaWOrG0u9SfvIjaQKJ-hJp6Q Americans Need Health Care. It Can’t Be Tied to Their Jobs. | The dual crises of mass unemployment and the coronavirus have laid bare a central flaw of the U.S. health care system. r/politics

Elizabeth Warren said the insurance industry last year “sucked $23 billion in profits out of the health care system.” as reported by 2019 National Association of Insurance Commissioners U.S. Health Insurance Industry | 2018 Annual Results

That leaves excess Profit at $17 Billion. NAIC doesnt account for all insurers and we can even double profit to $35 Billion just to be on the safe side, or 1% of Healthcare Costs


Very High Salaries

In the U.S. Registered Nurses 2018 Median Pay [$71,730 per year] (https://www.bls.gov/ooh/healthcare/registered-nurses.htm)

  • Fully qualified nurses start on salaries of [£24,214 rising to £30,112 or max out at $40,600] (https://www.nurses.co.uk/careers-hub/nursing-pay-guide/) on Band 5 of the NHS Agenda for Change pay rates.

  • With experience, in positions such as nurse team leader on Band 6, salaries progress to £30,401 to £37,267 or $50,300.

And Doctors

  • Average [yearly salary] (https://naibuzz.com/10-countries-highest-doctors-salaries-world/) for a U.S. specialist Dr – $370,000 Specialist make up 68% of the Doctor active

  • Average yearly salary for a specialist at NHS – $150,000

  • Average yearly salary for a U.S. GP – $230,000

  • Average yearly salary for a GP in NHS – $120,000


Duplication

36.3 million people spent an average of 6 nights in the hospital last year and Paid $1.1 Trillion to one of the 6,146 hospitals currently operating

Hospital Bed-occupancy rate

  • Canada 91.8%

  • for UK hospitals of 88% as of Q3 3019 up from 85% in Q1 2011

  • In Germany 77.8% in 2018 up from 76.3% in 2006

  • IN the US in 2019 it was 64% down from 66.6% in 2010

  • Definition. % Hospital bed occupancy rate measures the percentage of beds that are occupied by inpatients in relation to the total number of beds within the facility. Calculation Formula: (A/B)*100

The US has 15 Million people that are directly working in healthcare earning $1 Trillion so

While NHS list 150,000 Drs and 320,000 nurses for a population of 67 million

  • 447 people per Doctors

  • 209 People per Nurse

While Canada Healthcare list 86,644 Drs and 425,757 nurses for a population of 37 million

  • 425 people per Doctors

  • 86 People per Nurse

That means that we need 3.5 million less nurses and 200,000 less doctors In the 1,600 hospitals that need to be closed (vs UK NHS). And 1.1 million less nurses and 125,000 less doctors In the 1,800 (vs Canada) to many operating hospitals

Efficiency

High cost of Payment for services from back office work, though low 7.9% of healthcare is still an added cost

To reduce fraud and Admin hospitals are funded through global budgets. A “global budget” is a lump sum paid to hospitals at the first of a fiscal year to cover operating expenses based on expected medical needs of the area a hospital will serve.

  • To set those global budgets, directors will look to pay out based on the number of patients you have multiplied by the medicare reimbursement cost to fund your hospital/Doctors office/Nursing Home, etc for the year. So this puts hospitals, Doctor Offices under budgeting constraints

One problem is the group a study of high admin costs says has the highest Admin percentage cost, has the lowest insurance repayments. In Home Health & Hospice Care 27%/40% of revenues are reported to go towards administrative costs even though Medicaid and Medicare are the major payors with cash paying most of the rest

Home care (Nursing Care Facilities and Continuing Care Retirement Communities and Home Healthcare) is a diverse and dynamic service industry that Approximately 12 million individuals currently receive care at a cost of $263 Billion

All of these 3 issues save 25% or more of Healthcare Cost.

Even without efficiency its 20% savings
