Sooooo ok,, im told to do the "responsible thing" and GET ON THE TIT with some voucher i may receive for my healthcare. Which will be paid by those NOT on vouchers. Yur tax dollars in other words. But that is somehow better than me paying a hospital directly in payments? That is somehow better than just abusing the ER laws getting treated and have the hospital get a tax deduction from that loss?
In any case, sickening, fake, overinflated hospital bills have very little to do with remote likeness of actual costs + reasonable profit involved even with a very generous margin. (15K for one CAT scan and 10-min doc convo?...Reeeeally?)
Perhaps go after MEDICAL MAFIA instead? No? 2+2 is 5?
This society is being divided in terms of being on one or another side of "da voucher" more and more...;) US jobs are being replaced by temp, contract, low hourly pay and outsourced/h1b visa and other foreign slave labor. Yet, it's the middle class--that is in the process of being actively exterminated--who's required pick up "da voucher" tab.
Sounds like sh$$#.
Had downloaded "Eadible Insects", "Well drilling", etc yesterday...gud stuff, there got to be a place without watchful yes, etc.
At least with insurance, though, people can get preventive care, which is infinitely less expensive than waiting till something that could have been caught and treated early requires an extended hospital stay.
Preventive care? Wouldn't banning Dunkin' Donuts, McDonalds and most restaurants, plus horrible, toxic food substitutes that take up 95% of shelf space in most US stores be actual preventive care (versus fake one, that only enriches already fat medical leeches, PAYING them for said "preventive care")? (plus, banning harmful no-script pharmaceuticals, toxic cosmetic products, etc) Haha...nope, for the government 2+2 = 10.
Let's fatten 'em, sicken 'em, INSURE THEM and milk that cow! Things are getting Orwellian
Discussed this obamacare thing last night with my Hospital mngr buddy.
We took it step by step. We figured it WOULDNT benefit me to continue to look for work or more work to the shop due to my medical situations and the upcoming forced extortion rates. Even if i do increase my retail intake, between taxes and taxes and now more taxes it is quite likely that i will end up even poorer than now while working twice as hard. So the best thing FOR ME ,, is to stay at my poverty level, jump on the tit and suckle her dry- getting ALL my aliments fixed on the gubbmint dime.. They have welfare, food stamps and all manner of benefits that ive ignored all my life, in favor of working for a living.
^^^^^^^^^^^^ This was just a scenario. BUT ill bet it is one that is being examined by millions right now. From the young to the old. The hospitals shall have a million or more new MEDICAID folks. Medicaid that pays the lowest to the hospital of all programs..
Yeah Ron but it seems you're making up scenarios based on no facts.
And you'd be happier if those million people (did you make up that number too?) had no insurance and just got sicker until the system had to take care of their serious illness for nothing because all their money was gone by then?
