    1. he nation money by reducing administrative costs, eliminating the administrative expenses of marketing and advertising private health insurance,

      So will this make a money cheap in different countries like Mexico

    2. Per capita administrative costs may be higher in Medicare. For instance, in 2009 they were $509 in Medicare and $453 in private insurance. Medicare costs are lower as a percentage of the total only because total claims costs tend to be much higher in Medicare than in private insurance. This is because Medicare’s older and less healthy population file the claims costs. Medicare shifts administrative costs to doctors, hospitals, nursing homes, home health agencies, and other medical professionals who must comply with Medicare’s huge and complex regulatory requirements. Compliance with tens of thousands of pages of Medicare rules, regulations, guidelines, billing, and other paperwork requirements consumes vast amounts of time, energy, and effort on the part of the private-sector professionals who participate in the Medicare program. Medicare fails to effectively control waste, fraud, and abuse in the program. This failure of administration results in the staggering loss of tens of billions of taxpayer dollars each and every year. Private-sector health plans, policing their billing, have no comparable record in accumulating such enormous losses.

      There was an attempt to push through this plan.

    3. His planwould finance the national insurance program through a combination of payroll and income taxes, and it would replace private and employer-sponsored health insurance and existing government health programs—including Medicare itself.

    1. “Democrats think it's not progressive enough because it doesn’t put extra burdens on higher-income people, like an income tax does,” Hines says. “And Republicans worry that it's too easy for the government to raise money with one.”

    1. Um, so, but the other way is, you know, when, when they do make these transactions, they're all recorded on the exchanges that you, I moved those, that data to a spreadsheet and that's where I do the tax tracking.
    2. So the changing of the rules is, is kind of screwing with it, but I track it on a coin base and then I look at, you know, at the end of the month or end of the quarter or something, Say I traded a hell of lumen and I made a killing on lumen
    3. The other big issue is the fact that they're changing trading taxes on it. So now it's a fifo system for last year versus you could do like kind exchange in the year before. And so I'm keeping track bringing over those original cost basis is from the last, previous year to the new year is just so much easier on an excel sheet. I'm very transparent. It's, it's a pain in the ass and I hate to do it simply will not trust a one of those websites. I mean there's too much variance in literally I put a put tried two different websites.
    4. 100%. I mean, I uh, had light, I don't even remember exactly, but like 10,000 trees or something for 2018 I think. And same for 2017 like it's impossible for me to do it by hand
    5. Yeah. Use this tax software called Queen tracking tracking. I haven't been there in awhile, but that's how my to do list. But yeah, I basically, this is what I allow the API keys to get. They, they do read only and they allow them API act, read access to all my exchanges
    6. ns tax. Um, so I have a tax accountant that will help me and I think most of the exchanges have some type of data dump download. I'm not overly concerned with it. It might be a little messy, but I specifically moved here so I didn't have to overthink it. I know I don't have to pay any tax on it. So, um, okay. Yeah, that was my solution
