the patients, that will prices,ward pressure on that is the only way to keep prices down and then make all tax deductible. that is basically getting away system, insurance except for catastrophic issues, the only reason people really when they are cost associated with it that go to beyond their ability pay. that is my comment, i wish -- host: daryl, when do you think over reforming the affordable care act, when do you think it got away from what you important e most part, the cost for individuals? caller: well, i think the issue place and ut in rammed through in the 11th hour in the first place. there is all that talk about how uch they are able to discuss prior, so that is not really true. remember, you know, nancy
