    Oh, how do you feel about wealth folk claiming recreation as rehabilitation expenses, again, use the pool analogy, old bastard has a heart attack, his doctor "prescribes exercise, low impact, suggests swimming" half million dollar pool gets built, and it gets written off? that's very real you know

    Or better yet, Steve Jobs taking one dollar a year as salary, with an unlimited expense account? Apple writing off the expense?

    You want to take a closer look bonehead? there's a lot of cob webs to be cleaned up.
    as I stated in the OP, deductions and exemptions go away. such items as you mentioned are not a deduction as specified.

    if you wish to pay for care which is above the stated standards, that's your choice. if you want a supplemental plan to cover items not covered by medicaid, that's up to you. other than that, premiums go away.

    You're wrong about that Bonehead, these are legit deductions, you just have to know how to use them, typical, find a solution to the symptom not the virus, I show you the virus, you are concerned with the cost of the fever reducer.

    How about loosening the tenets in GAO whereas only firms of a certain size can bid on government contracts? the overspending in the defense budget is disgusting; 100 dollars to clean 10 pounds of laundry in Iraq, by KBR when a smaller firm outbid them, but they weren't allowed to submit their bid, due to size; why is that? the GAO pays in thirty days, you only need a limitation on size when you negotiate longer payment terms, that's common practice. So tell me, when are you going to call for the virus to be "cured"? start with the military budget, there's so much waste there, you couldn't build a garbage dump big enough to contain it.

    I have a general idea, I've had no reason to examine it fully.

    what I stated was a federal tax plan (to replace the current one) and a healthcare plan (to replace the current ones). it's not intended to cure waste and theft. but, with the reduction in work the IRS will have, they will have plenty of time and personnel to insure those things are not allowed. there is no plan that is a cure-all for what your concerns are - and those are legitimate concerns.

    coverage is quite good, actually. co-pays, even if they are charged (depends on income) are very low - on the order of $5 for doctors and $10 for specialists. prescription drug costs are also low - usually less than $5. most doctors currently see medicare and medicaid patients (my wife's family doctor does) so seeing a doctor isn't a problem.

    I have zero in co-pays or prescriptions once I reach my deductible.

    there is no deductible with medicaid. also no total out-of-pocket costs.
