i dont comment on that cause i dont really understand it


Lots of folks don't. That's know it's grown to this proportion.

If I could explain in basic terms, how would you enjoy the services of Google combined with the abilities of Youtube that was also receiving government (taxpayer) funds. Then you were forced to use it. ......oh...wait.

If only the House and Senate would remove all aspects of Obamacare.


If only the government didn't mandate prices for Medicare and insurance reimbursements.



But I'm sure your solution is to get government even more involved.

Republicans keep bringing this up, Democrats don't want to hear it. Hospitals charge whatever they feel like charging and you won't know until after the procedure.

It's like going to a restaurant and every restaurant refuses to give prices and they vary day to day and customer to customer.





Health care is not a partisan issue .

OP, you may not realise it (I am convinced you have lost all perspective), but people having insurance issues relating to medical treatment is not new.

Why don't we cut things short. There will be 100.000s of business that go bust and as many people who will find they did not have enough insurance, or not what they thought they had. This is nothing new.
But given you want to a create a thread for every one of them, could you please do us all a favour and not create a million threads? We already totally understand that you are still bitter about an election result.

For insurance plans to meet the legal "Obamacare" standards they basically cover absolutely Nothing! One of my grown kids had insurance at her former job which she paid $125 a week for that covered absolutely nothing- she was literally just paying to say she had insurance under federal law. She'd have been better off just opting out of the insurance and paying the IRS penalty. Thank goodness she got a better job with actual REAL insurance now!

I've said it before that obama should have focused on making healthcare affordable.
That is where the real problem exists.

I had my daughter to the emergency room last week for possible appendicitis and I paid a $250 co pay. Haven't gotten the bill for the cscan.

Turns out she had a burst cyst on her ovary which is very painful.

The bill will be painful for me.

So can we set prices without being socialist? Prolly not.

We could as another user pointed out make them list their rates and post them.

Would it be so bad if they had to have a menu with prices?

Easy change that could help.

We should be able to walk into any hospital at any givin time and have access to a price schedule.

agreed, I was fooled into beleiving payin $880 a month for premium health insurance would help my family instead the eye doctor, dentist and everyone else took us for so many tests we still paid thousands last year...its a scam, it needs fixed, but governments run by folks like clinton and bush wont improve crap

Maybe we could use the same laws that do not allow retailers to jack up prices during an emergency to tighten up the system.

10$ for a bottle of water during a storm can land you in jail but a 10,000$ catheter during an emergency gets you a pat on the back if you are in the healthcare field.

Well I don't understand how it could be, I thought the whole idea of your healthcare system was to keep it private and government out of it.

Except Democrats want to make it government run. And neither party cares about anything outside political points.

My work colleague had Stents a few months ago. Cost, zero.

All aspects of Heathcare has become nothing but giant money mill for the corrupt and greedy.

All anti competitive laws should be brought to bear until this industry is utterly destroyed.

(Sorry admin workers but you are deadweight in a system designed to fleece Americans wealth)

Once corporate actors are driven out via bankruptcy and litigation actual healthcare deliverer's such as doctors and nurses can buy facilities at 10 cents on dollar and deliver affordable healthcare where virtually everyone would NOT need a middleman insurer fleecing even more money.

Burn it down - 18 months later things will return to stability but at far lower cost.

That sounds peachy.

How much is a gallon/liter of gas?
Have a v.a.t. in Britain?

Not exactly no cost. He's just been making pre payments for several years.
