"And long term care. Hospitals are interesting. They're not really distinct from skilled nursing facilities. There's sort of an administrative construct, which grew out of the way. The Medicare fee for service program was built in the early eighties. They started to this small group of hospitals that were meant to be rehab facilities, but they were paid way more than any other post acute provider and what you saw happen. Is something that you see across the health care system, which is that a group of folks often private equity firms realized that this particular group of providers in this case long term care hospitals get paid way more than anybody else for the same thing. And then they start investing in them, and they start popping up across the country and needing more customers. Yeah, exactly, and they become really hard to get rid off. The economists Amy Finkelstein, Miran enough, and Neil Mahoney did an analysis of these long term care hospitals and they tried to see it always. They are they are they offering better characters? Wow, we pay them about 30,000 more per case than we do anybody else? And the answer turns out to be no, I think it's a really good example of sheer waste. There's just nothing in that sector that provides goods just rent seeking, and it raises spending by about four billion. Ah, year. So it sounds like much of what you're describing up and down the line is what you economists call rent seeking, right? Extracting profits without adding value, but There are constituencies attached right? Those rent seekers are people and firms and shareholders and so on. Let's imagine that all of your 1% solution proposals were ultimately adopted, at least to some degree. Who are the constituencies that lose out the most. And how much do they lose? When we think about waste in the U. S healthcare system? We need to think that that waste is somebody's income, and it makes it really, really hard to tap out and what that's Let me do my own work. I think a lot about the political economy of the U. S. Healthcare system. It turns out members of Congress literally get more money when health spending goes up in their district and when they do things that steer benefits to health care providers in the form of higher payments. They get a huge amount of additional money in campaign contributions. And so we actually the system that rewards politicians for taking steps that raise spending? With such a complicated system, you can see why so much previous health care reform has attacked very large targets..

"Love yeah she. She told us how she got her doctorate and animal science wrestling cows and pigs. Yes a five foot. Tall women. Wrangling cattle is still the funniest thing. I've ever imagined so many stories but there was one i wanna share in this mail when she was seventeen years old. She was a clerk for a gas station in her hometown. One time she was alone counting the money and about to close up shop just then a large burly man with a ski mask and a gun walked in the first thing dr benson said to him was. Hey we don't actually have cameras and ca- terrible memory so you can just skip the whole. I am a scary masked man bit. This took him back with so much. Fuck you energy. That he actually took off the mask and demanded the money. It distracted him just enough for dr benson to have enough time to grab and this is all caps her personal shotgun that she kept in the store to point at him. Oh yes this. Small seventeen year old brought her dad's shotgun with her to every shift for this exact moment. Hell ya the guy ended up. Just running out and dr benson closed up shop as usual also. The gas station did have one camera so did capture his face yet. And the guy got arrested for attempted robbery She said she didn't know what happened. After that to the guy. But i can imagine. He felt a little emasculated having been beaten out by five foot tall seventeen year. Old girl Day sexy and don't ever try to fight. Small people olive. Ps if you want the story at the time she stops someone who was assaulting her husband. Just let me know. I got far too many stories about this amazing woman. Her fucking biography immediately. But in the meantime all of that story in put your name all live in the subject line because we'll pull that immediately unless you're a ghost are you a person from today's named olive unbelievable lauren. Kurt bronchiolar from our podcast network lauren. Our our friend. Their daughter's name is all it which is is coming back with the best. Come on back all of a little mad. That i couldn't have my cat that because i have a daughter was just be brewed right. I hope you really got in their face about and then there are other kid. Their son's name is gus. Which is the best cat's name in the world. you're like what. Why are you doing that. Maybe i shouldn't be friends with them anymore. Maybe you should break with them. A couple isn't gusts the hot tub cat's name. Yes that was that he was before them. So it's okay okay all right okay. Here's my first one high friends. This is a creepy neighbour story. I don't remember if you ask for that but let's assume you did when i'm sure we did when i lived in salt lake city. My husband and i lived in a row home. That was only four houses long. I don't know what that is i. I'm guessing it's a house that stuck to three other house or like new york. How they have the railroad homes that it's like they're just like straight narrow but then their rooms break off. Hold on a second. Oh look at stephen showing us hot. It's thank you steven. Yeah their houses that are just right next to each together. Yeah got it all right so our next door neighbor was a fifty ish year. Old guy named earl. He was single worked at the gas station next door house so it was always outside his house. Smoking and hanging with people he met at the station was right. I was walking to my car. One day not long after i moved in and he stopped me and asked if i wanted to come inside to see his quote. Extensive butcher knife collect onto and went on to say he loved to sneak up on people and come at them slasher style as a joke. I politely said no. Thank you and to never ever do that to me. Oh all red flags and the neighbor boundaries. Fast forward to three years later still living at the same place. I was coming home on the bus from work like i do. Every day. it was a local bus route with the same people. And i thought it was odd that a guy didn't recognize got on and off at the exact same stops i did. I decided to take a weird out home to see if he wasn't fact following me or if i was paranoid i made a ton of random turns that looped back on itself and he's still followed me about twenty steps behind me. I went to call my husband and realized my phone was dead and then in parentheses. A common occurrence for me Me too my husband worked later in the evening. And i realized i was being followed while walking in my house where i would be alone with a dead phone so my panic brain drove me in a direction that i didn't expect straight to my creepy neighbor. He opened the door and i told him. Some dude was following me and without skipping. Said said i'm on it and came out of the house with you guessed it a butcher knife and a taser other. The guy following was loitering behind a tree in front of my driveway and ditched quick. After seeing earl in all his knifed up early sat in front of my door with his knife and teaser. Despite my protests and until my husband came home two hours later kicking. It's the cutest georges full-on crying. You love you. Love the twist of earl Well i feel guilty. That i was like. He's the pro. I mean when you need someone in a moment like never. Can i just say this story real quick. And i was like twenty one. I had my first car. And i it fucking of course died in the middle of a busy intersection. And i don't know how to do cars things from twenty one and understanding out there crying and people are honking at me. The only person who got into their car to help me was enormous fully padded up scary dude. And you saw me crying. He pushed my car out of the way. He gave me his card because he was a tattoo artists. That turned down and i was just like he was the only person who stopped. Help me so those. And i find that very lovely. I mean that is a beautiful story. And i think here's the thing earl was giving off red flag. Vibe weren't wrong to say it but we all need to go over time and again where it's like yes. Sometimes when people collect weapons that means hopefully they would like to hurt people but what we're learning from this story is it doesn't mean that they want to hurt the wrong people right. It's like irl was a secret hero winning for his moment and his with butcher knives too. Shy however i feel like her instinct not to go inside. His house was the right one to. Yes but also that's just good neighbor Politics you don't wanna be up in your neighbor's house. Yes you don't wanna good fences make good neighbors you just. You just can't say likable by staying far away. Amazing that's that's what makes it okay. So far a husband came home two hours later anyway. I don't know if the moral of the story is trust. Your creepy neighbors or charger fucking phones or who knows. Stay sexy and start collecting butcher knives. Aaron wonderful instincts. Beautiful thinks i think that was. It's nice to have. It's like a silver lining story happen every what's also our our friend.

He sent me one of the loveliest notes about how watching this happen to us was like watching Two girls like win the lottery. And by all the roller skates and gum balls. They wanted it was like the cutest loveliest and he worked on mr show so he knew from the beginning. I've known for a long time He was my secret crush for a long time. Yeah it's very fucking sad.

If you WANNA throwback allowing people to end their lives hasten their deaths prematurely really is very controversial for religious people for advocates for disabled people they have very difficult time with not letting people on just achieve what they call a natural death. Jonelle Alicia covers end of life care for Kaiser Health News. One thing that has people who choose this option action are very wedded to the concept of individuality and determining their own fate so that might be a big factor in these places all across. That's the country. How do the laws work. What exactly do they allow so you have to be deemed mentally competent and you have to have a terminal the illness with a confirmed prognosis of having six months or less to live and it's with a certain certain types of illness dementia doesn't qualify for instance I'm so a doctor has to diagnose you and has to say that he or she would not be surprised if you died within six months and then patients have to to drive it. They have to request the drugs. They have to say a few different times orally and in writing that this is what they want that it's voluntary very that they're not being coerced by anyone and that it's their intent to end their lives because of their underlying terminal illness and you say requests the drugs how those drugs taken orally intravenously no one key factor is that the patient has has to be able to self administered the drugs they have to be able in to ingest the drugs themselves and that's a tricky thing like for people with a LS who who could lose the capacity to swallow sometimes they have a narrow window when their condition will even allow them to use medical aid in dying even though they qualify for it but a key factor is that no one can give the drug to the patient. There's no injection allowed. They have to be able to take these drugs and swallow them in Justin S. than themselves. And why do patients want to have this option to to go get a drug from like. Let's say like a state sanctioned provider provider that will end their lives when obviously you could just take too much of any kind of drug and end your life yeah you no. It's actually a lot harder to kill yourself than one would think and so the options for people who want to end their lives can be not particularly certain you can. I'd say oh I'll just take a bunch of whatever kind of drug and it might only make you sick and not kill you so that's one factor putting together. A lethal dose of a drug is actually pretty tricky even for the doctors who have been working on these laws for such a long time but you know we have more than twenty years of data in Oregon and overwhelmingly overwhelmingly what people say why they want this option is because about ninety percent of them say it's because they fear losing their autonomy and almost unequal amounts say it's because they can't engage in the activities that make life enjoyable or make life worth living so those are the two top reasons that people oh give when they ask them. Why do you want to injure life in this way. three quarters of them say they fear the loss of dignity that comes with the decline with a terminal illness and a little bit less than half of in twenty years in Oregon say they don't want to burden their families with their illness. I guess we'll have to wait and and see how this goes in Maine but what about all the other states that have some form of legalized assisted suicide aid in dying whatever you WANNA call it. Have there been in some serious legal challenges or is it all kind of settled so it's by no means settled it's controversial almost every time it it goes before the Public Colorado legalized medical aid in dying in two thousand sixteen so it's only been there for a couple years. You know a not a huge number of people have taken advantage of the law yet or used law yet. I should say and the situation in Colorado is there as a a a man Neil Mahoney who just found out in July that he has terminal cancer busy said you have an since Asaf of Jill cancer and he says not up and he is a former Catholic who no longer shares that religion and who wants the right to end his life. If we want to make sure I have some kind of control this at least make it as easy on my family's possibly watch his mother die a terrible agonizing death and so it's legal he voted for it in Colorado and so he wanted to use it his Dr Dr Barbara Morris Works First Cintra Health Corporation in Colorado and and it has a policy that says that it's providers aren't allowed to participate in Aden dying the issue is that Dr Morris and her client Neil Mahoney they said that the hospital's policy went beyond what the state allows so the state law allows an opt tout where entities hospitals and like a third of the hospitals in Colorado are religiously oriented and religiously run and they have said we're not going to do this and they're are allowed to do that under the law they're allowed to say we don't want to do this but the law stipulates that they can tell their doctors that they can't write prescriptions for are eight and nine to be used on the premises. It doesn't say anything about writing prescriptions for patients at home and so Dr Morris and Neil went went to court to clarify that to say hey is this policy broader than the state launches the State Law apply here and what happened is a few days after they filed that lawsuit center of fired Dr Morris as it makes its way through the court system might have implications in other states yeah. There's the idea the legal scholars I talked to said that this is increasingly an argument that conservative religious entities are making that the first amendment protections allowed by the Constitution actually overrule any particular state law that might be enacted and they expect that to be an argument going forward. I mean whether whether it goes to higher courts at you know remains to be seen and here in the United States. It's where you've got a few states that allow it and most of the states that don't what happens to all the other people who who may want this option but don't get well in the recent years. We've heard stories about people moving a two states where aid in Diana's legal I'm sure folks will remember the story about Brittany. Maynard removed from California to Oregon because she had brain cancer in order to access the State Law on New Year's Day two thousand fourteen to Migrate Shock. I learned I had brain cancer. Despite the efforts of advanced medicine may cancer is aggressive and currently without any care. It's really difficult to do. You have to establish residency while you're this sick. That's non thing that a large number of patients can do people who are dying and other states. It's simply don't have the have the option and I guess I have to say that even in the states where this is legal it is highly controversial and patients like Neil Bill Mahoney in Colorado now he has lost his primary care doctor and he still would like to be able to use law but it's very difficult for patients to find doctors who are willing to participate in Aden dying. Many doctors just don't WanNa do it. They feel like that's not the purpose of medicine. They feel like it's outside. The scope of medicine now some doctors they feel compassionate about the patients who are dying and feel like this is a help to them. but medical societies are divided about whether this should be allowed or shouldn't be allowed so even in in states where it's legal patients can have a very difficult time accessing the law.

Some people are going to get very little value and pay ton in fees. It's just going to be a really bad situation for them.

So we need people get free airplane tickets and credit card points, and they never pay a fee, and guess who's paying for all of that the people who make mistakes write who pay all these fees and interests. It's like billions of dollars that these people are paying. And you'll says this may not be fair. But if you can't change the world, you can only change your actions. Make sure you're one of the people who is not cross-subsidizing everybody else. The you're sort of playing this game intelligently? Yeah. I I think it's a great way to look at.

Neal says you should pay your credit card Bill in full every month on auto pay because you never wanna pay those super expensive credit card interest rates either right now, a lot of credit cards will give you the option of just paying the minimum automatically which would protect against late fees. But the one thing I would caution people against is. If you set up auto pay to pay the minimum every month. You might end up incurring more credit card debt, and you plan to behavioral economists say we tend to stick with the default option. So that might mean you're gonna just pay that minimum. That's on a Matic payments.

And that gets us to take number two overdraft protection is overdraft deception. Okay. That's like our catch away. Saying overdraft protection sounds like something good. But of course, the way this worst rate is at the Bank lets you overspend your checking account often by just a few bucks, and then an exchange it hits you at this thirty five dollars overdraft fee and that can happen again. And again, and again, I mean, if you looked at those fees as interest that the bag is charging the loan you that small bit of money for just a few days.

Because if that goes away, you've lost your gig. You've lost your thing. Your little secret sauce. Saif figured that should be something that gyco would be willing to ensure.
