On Armstrong & Getty 6/28/17 as We "Sail the Churning Seas of Benefits" & U.S. Healthcare

We start at about the 11 minute mark below.

7 AM - 1 - Joe's trying to de-clutter. 2 - Craig Gottwals talks Trumpcare latest with us. 3 - The News with Marshall Phillips. 4 - John McEnroe said Serena would be #700 among men players.

In this segment, Jack and Joe really wanted to focus on what this means for the average patient.  The following story came out just after our our interview and I think is  a great addition to the discussion - this is the direction we would be headed under a more socialized system.
  • A new study released Thursday by the Fraser Institute estimates that 63,459 Canadians left the country for medical care last year. That's up about 40% from 2015.
  • According to Fraser Institute's yearly measurement of wait times, people waited an average of 10.6 weeks to see a specialist for treatment, which is four weeks longer than what physicians deemed reasonable.
