Well I was a kid seeded there's there's more competition. For you were your interest in you were engagement than there was when I was a kid so I get that. But I missed I'd tell my kids all summer I don't know they listen to me and I don't know whether is still. Prove out to be true in their lives put in but in my life. The smartest.

Oh I can't say whether it's really taken or not taken at this point again there'll. They're still teenagers who remain have been quite sure what they're doing on a day to day basis anyway. But that I'd tell that all the time like if you wanna be smarter more knowledgeable more well informed about any day.

I'm 86 for a high today sunny warm windy again even warmer tomorrow and Friday. 92 for a high tomorrow 91 on Thursday the Labor Day weekend looks pretty much the same hot windy and dry and a mixed of mixed bag there. I saw this headline this morning and as a as a parenting. Dad with kids in college in a couple beer and headed that direction. This is it a headline in the grass I suspension very quickly more parents are refusing. To pay for their kids college tuition. I found the choice of word refusing. Interest and more parents. Are refusing to pay for their kids college tuition according to a new survey just 29% of parents. Now say they plan to fully pay for their kids to go to college that the number is now own from 43%. Just two years ago. In on average parents now expect to pay just 62% of their kids total college cost down from 70%. Two years ago. There must be a whole bunch of different pieces of this that I'm. This I'm missing. I. Even so let's just start wouldn't even if you can. Pay for your kid or kids to go to college for you you can write the check even if you can. I have to wonder. If there isn't some value in in having your you know like having to me your kid having some skin in the game right lake even if you could write that check yet but it's your education. I want you invested in I need you to come up with whatever the number it's okay so that's the first part of the thing. The second part of a definitive. This kind of money what do I miss it I used to sort out this morning are historian I have four kids. Right and let's just take a ballpark let's let's say CU CSU. University northern Colorado Colorado State schools. Let's just average those doubts let's say 25000. A year. Our room and board and tuition at the new internal the other stuff the 25 grip that for us that would be a hundred grand. Per kid. Times 4400000. Dollars what am I did it but until people have that kind of money. I figured it would be a fairly small percentage but maybe I'm maybe I'm wrong here I mean even if I want to have. Right Dutch I couldn't win I could write a check for our kids on us on a more CIA you know ambient I'm. Taking moral outrage stance here but on a more serious note I really do think I mean access to education particularly higher education. I think as a huge in the cost of a huge issue in this country now and getting bigger leg by eight to ten to 12% every year. And I don't I feel like. That's not I don't see political people talking about that maybe you know local or federal level but it could be they are in and I've just missed it. And I'm busy working and trying to help kids get through college but top boy there's a lot more parents refusing to pay for their kids college tuition. Lot of different directions or take that story resurrection jukebox coming up at 8 o'clock this morning it may be the greatest success story. In the history of rock and roll. History of rock and roll. You know television Ed televangelists in phenomenon has always been a primarily. I think here in the states and in not so much in your opinion guys in Depeche Mode being from England particularly in the eighties when it was show big. Found the whole thing fascinating in troubling and I would say and that was true jumping off point for that some personal Jesus Depeche Mode. On 995 the mountain a Mike Casey LE heart Wiki is so on vacation arrested this week in case I forget to mention her I don't say enough. Thank you for being here thanks for spend some time with us. In the mornings I give you you know you're busy we get that you got a lot of it a lot of different media choices so we appreciate you. Spend a little bit of time with us I mean any time you know really you're more than welcome to thank you. Our dear mr. this is Austin, Texas a guy named drew cal over 44 years old. Survived a party to teacher survived a heart attack last year. Only to be hit with a bill that I'm shocked didn't give him another attack he was taken to saint David's medical center in Austin, Texas. And he. That hospital is out of his network on the school district health plan. As he's being admitted I mean this guy he's had a heart attack the hospital assured him assured mr. caliber it would accept his insurance. Imagine his surprise when he received a bill. For 108951. Dollars more than twice. His annual salary. Are the the nuts and bolts of it is who Duckett too far into the weeds there's a thing called balance billing. And another thing called surprise bills and these these apparently happened quite frequently in the insurance and post insurance I'm world person goes to an in network hospital. But receives treatment from an out of network doctor while there. And then ends up with a bill from that doctors that was part of the issue here the second one is on the call balance billing where an insurer agrees to pay. For the necessary emergency care at an out of network hospitals it's the closest one. The closest one but then disagrees with the hospital. On what are reasonable prices the patient is then build the difference so again mr. Calvert now looking at him bill of roughly 109. Thousand dollars these stories come up from time to time it seems like more frequently than they used to. I said a 100000 times before. I'm not that I don't I'm not an expert I don't have the answer for this my only thing is when I look at I read a story like this. I look at a story like this I think of of myself for my wife from my family. Week there has to be a better answer than if you get sick you go broke. There has to be a better answer than that I'm not saying I know what it is. But they're there has to be something that's more equitable where they care still meets the level that it should particularly here in in the western world. But I mean c'mon a 108000. Dollars out of pocket for a guy who makes 51 green in the year. Now you understand why he was concerned when he was being admitted to the hospital no don't admit we hear it's out of network. There's nothing you should be thinking about we just had a heart attack on an interesting story all posted on our blog. A little bit later today coming up next on the mountain working the armed nice paradise in behavior save your run. There's only two shows left and dunks it. Wednesday morning 840 year and 995. The mountain fury in the fast roller coaster you might wanna put this one on your bucket list it's a young ferraris seemed roller coaster.
