    I live in a pretty rural area, most would call it positively outback, but I wouldn't say that health care is any more affordable. However, access to primary care physicians is relatively straightforward, it is the specialists that are not available. My wife and I have to travel to Reno or to Salt Lake City for specialist care so the cost of travel and lodging is added to the cost of medical care. Different problems in different health care markets.

    Now since you admit to being an amateur stop acting like you are smarter than everyone else on APUG.
    Also please stick to the subject of analog photography.
    1. Any indication that I am smarter than anyone else is 100% of your own invention.
    2. My original post was regarding Kodak.
    3. I did not cause this thread to drift onto the topic of healthcare.

    This article seems quite informative: http://www.democratandchronicle.com/...ar|text|NEWS01

    The topic of this thread is medical insurance. APUG is a worldwide forum. It would have been impossible for non-US members to obtain the slightest understanding of the thread's topic without some discussion of how our medical care so-called "system" operates and is funded in the US.

    I have no problems with where this thread is drifting. I merely refuted the accusation directed at me by brianmquinn, that it was me who started the talk about US health care beyond the Kodak story. The thread when that way, as you suggest, naturally without my direct input.

    Yes, I should have been clearer, the thread did not actually "drift."

    I never thought you were smart, just arrogant.

    This it the type of comment I like to see. It is on subject and shows concern and understanding. Not of the whole healthcare debate but the situation of the individuals that were Kodak workers.

    The fact is Kodak is bankrupt and therefore UNABLE to pay the bills that it owes. Stupidity may have pushed them into this corner but the fact is that is where they are.
