You let me get all done you -- -- patients in your office and -- out interviewing people to deciding whether or not these are medical -- Or truths let's talk about the first one.
Okay well the first one is absolutely -- if you have insurance it doesn't necessarily mean you're gonna get care.
And I interviewed some parents that went to one of those top sports medicine.
Experts in the country who actually operator on NFL MVP from the Minnesota vikings' Adrian Peterson he's tremendous yet.
His trip -- considered experimental.
Let's have a look.
Choices presented us as parents.
-- to have a surgery with a 95%.
Success -- -- with no coverage.

The whole thing is attacks you have an excise tax in the capital gains statue of attaching to sell your home -- -- -- and you don't get insurance.
There's more taxes built into this -- you can imagine in premiums of course they're gonna skyrocket when you try to cover everybody.

Health plans are always -- the literature.

And determining what's safe and what's effective and what should be introduced into the mainstream.
But what you I think it's going to be taxed you of course and I don't see how you can cover the latest technology or how you could have an incentive for new technologies and new treatments.
When your busy trying to cover everybody with this insurance that you can use whenever you want.
I think that it's gonna be in jeopardy I think insurance companies and and drug companies are gonna say we don't have treatments here that I'm gonna have a market -- -- -- not gonna have the same incentive.
Last a doctor -- and thanks so much have a fantastic Friday and a great week and -- took a little and we can thank you.
