Which of course are questions that an actual scholarly paper (rather than a propaganda piece) would have endeavored to answer.

Okay... good start.

Now, finish the thought.

What are the difference in the coverage associated wth the differences in premiums?

Come on. You can do it.
None. my friend.

No... IC.

You have presented no data.

Look it up.

"Data."

It's not that difficult a concept, really.

There is quite a bit of data in the 2 reports.

You can't support your position. Hmmm...

Please... point us exactly to the place in the report where it says "There was no indication that teachers were actually getting better benefits for that price."

Then pause for a moment and consider the deep philosophical implications of being asked to prove a negative.

Then, get a clue.

My you are an angry one, aren't you?

Are you suggesting one can't prove a negative? Be careful......

But you haven't presented any of it.

You have only presented the analysis.

I am being explicit that in this case IC has lied. He has repeatedly asserted that I said something.

What exactly would you have me point to to prove I never said it?

On the other hand, IC could effortlessly prove he was not lying simply by linking to the post where I actually said what he claims.

The burden of proof is entirely on him... or you since you have positioned yourself as his white knight.
