The fox is in the chicken house. Yes, our health care in this country is controlled by insurance companies, hospitals, nonprofits, pharmaceuticals and the government.
Other countries give excellent care to their people with less money. So is the fox looking for a chicken to snatch?
Why are the medical bills so expensive? Medicare does not pay more than 10 to 15 percent over the actual cost. This accounts for the profits to the institutions. If you are able to secure a copy of the March 4 Time Magazine be prepared to feel like screaming before you are finished with the article.
Medical bills are killing us. This isn’t because of ObamaCare, which will factor in some of these problems and demand the high cost of insurance be under control.
Are too many tests being given in order to avoid malpractice suits? What is the high cost of research and development of drugs costing and who pays for this?
Have you tried to read a hospital bill recently? So much is in code so you don’t know what you are being charged. If you are a Medicare patient you think, “Oh it is being paid for.” Yes, at your expense and the taxpayers’.
If I would suggest single-payer insurance, then everyone would howl “socialism.”
The people on Medicare and Medicaid already use this system and it is far more economical than insurance companies, but who controls all of this? The lobbyists and Congress.
Millions are spent by them giving our Congress members money for their campaigns so they can be re-elected to vote the way the fox wants them to.
