    Thank you for exposing the corruption in Washington and the Healthcare Industry. These forces are colluding to screw the American people. In order to "Make American Great Again," the swamp must be drained completely and exposed the filthy individuals who hide behind their fancy titles while robbing the American people to death (literally). Only in America allows these fat cats to breathe freedom air when they should have been in prison. A guy who robs a bank of a few hundred dollars could be swiftly prosecuted and put away in prison for many years while these fat cats who have been killing tens of thousands of Americans while robbing them hundreds of billions of dollars are getting away with murder.

    Congress does not have to "enjoy" the same health care as the rest of us because OBAMA snuck in an exemption for them!

    How do people not know all this? Haven't they seen what has happened to news media since all the mergers of the 1980's and 1990's? How can anyone think hospital and medical services mergers will do anything else?
    If we get rid of insurance, we will see a precipitous drop in costs.

    I cannot understand how american's allow government to control their healthcare. If people would do research into their medical issues they would find natural remedies/cures to most of their illnesses. Meds kill people more so then dis-ease.

  • Slowdown !
    Slowdown ! 7 days ago +3

    The main reason medical costs are out of balance is because drugs are not legal without a prescription from a physician. There was a time when they were, and there wasn't a drug problem because "water finds its own level". People knew the dangers and if they didn't heed the warnings they died before too long. Doctors had low, affordable and competitive prices, knowing that you didn't 'have' to go through them.There was no black market crime, and addiction was low. There was no rehab, (or cost). The jails were not over flowing, and costing taxpayers, either. ( that's just the facts of life).

    Healthcare is like any other business, it exists to make as much profits as possible. Patients are seen as "customers." Most hospital employees don't feel this way, but it's how many high up administrators & others on the top see it.

      QQQ 4 of course I don't know where you live, but you must be talking about very small hospitals with low populations. All the major cities, and in particular where I live there are only a handful of hospital owners, and they are major corporations, here in the dfw metro, they own as many as 30 separate hospitals and care centers, and I'm talking about just in the metro. And the same corporation owns hospitals all across the state. I don't believe they are anywhere close to bankruptcy.

    I wish the American public knew just how much corporations want to turn their hospitals into resorts, how much hospitals blatenly waste money in order to beg for more, how doctors over diagnose in order to justify a slew of needless tests, and how much nurses prioritize their personal lives over their professional ones while at work.
    I worked side by side with medical staff for five years.
    They are ALL crooks, top to bottom.
    Unless I have one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel,
    I'll never set foot in a hospital again.

    • Chadohog

      Will Winters Sorry to busy your bubble Will, you're right about hospitals and doctors, but all the nurses i know, and I happen to live with one, work their asses off 12 his a day (or in our case 12 hours a night. Running from patient to patient because h they are understaffed due to the hospital corporations greed of running a skeleton crew to maximize profits. Nurses are still the angels of the earth.

    What a jack ass, I am glad the doctors do let you stay longer because most the time you get out of the hospital your right back there because you have become sicker and there is nothing wrong with your doctor referring you to another doctor if he or she may think they can help you better

    And the hospitals do it all in the name of "research ". Also, most people don't check out everything they're charged for. Numerous not once, numerous times I was charged for something never received & not able to do a thing about it, brushed aside but of course told it would be taken care of, ha!! Go back to the pharmaceuticals & what is now the Lyme EPIDEMIC. $$$$$. What's sad is that for the people's whose whole lives have been not just ruined but pure hell are still begging for nothing more than a life!! A day to feel like it's possibly going to be worth getting up out of bed that day especially after a night over and over of no sleep, pain, nightmares and on, on & on. There's NO WAY anyone in the swamps would just sit back and watch if they we're personally connected, they will be though. Then as usual it'll be a different story and suddenly worth doing the right thing, something about it.

    If you do not think that doctors are getting rich, you haven't looked at the numbers. Doctors compensation in the states is often double that you see in European countries. Specialists make huge amounts of money. We half to get free market principles back in order to control price. This means we should not subsidize through the tax system or welfare system the third party payer system. Every thing else is just a pipe dream.

      BrokeAss Gaming,

      I should have known, another arrogant, ignorant foreigner, probably from a pissant nation having the gall to contend they know more about our nation that we do.

      Allow me to instruct your ignorant ass before you continue displaying what a fool you are. This Russian 'agent' that Don Jr. met with had her visa denied. The Obama justice department then granted her a special consideration waiver to allow her into the country. It is a mystery at this time, how she got back into the country six months after her special considerations waiver had expired. She attended the congressional hearing on US/Russia relationships, sitting next to Obama's ambassador to Russia. It has been discovered she has ties to Fusion GPS.

      The person that founded Fusion GPS, a democrat political action group, the one responsible for the debunked 'Steele Dossier', a hit piece on Trump, has withdraw his agreement to testify before congress. MSM does not report any of this and THAT is how politicians get away with so much in MY country. By far the most effective way to shape public opinion and beliefs is to control the information they receive.

      Also ANY American citizen can talk to ANYONE at ANYTIME about ANYTHING as long as it doesn't involve classified information. The 1st amendment gives them that right and to selectively apply it violates the Constitution upon which MY nation was founded.

      You need to shut your ignorant yap, quit sticking your nose where it doesn't belong and quit pretending to be knowledgeable of things you know absolutely nothing about.

    • Chadohog
      Chadohog 7 days ago

      eric777100763 The bigger problem though is the fact that medical and pharmaceutical companies can donate to politicians who in turn pass laws in their favor, driving up the cost just so they can make more money without doing any more for it. Donations of any kind to political campaigns should be illegal. No matter how you look at it, all money donated to campaigns inflates prices, and it is the consumer who ends up paying for it, and Healthcare and energy are the biggest donors.

She also has worked for 30 years, and she can barely Walk after her 12 h hour shift, running from patient to patient all night long. pour all the blame you want on hospitals and doctors. Leave the nurses alone. they're not the ones getting the kickbacks from pharma.

      Eddie Correa most doctors graduate with 200,000 in debt. Between the cost of malpractice insurance required by each doctor and paying off their med school debt, the REAL problem is we need tort reform to control malpractice insurance and we need to max out the amount paid to hospital administrators (individually and in total). I would much prefer to pay for good doctors but not for administrators.

    A little realityWe the American people (each of us) are responsible for our country!!!!! In any civilization, past, present or future, under any form of government, pharaoh, dictator, king, ceasor, communism, socialism, republic, parliament or congress, there is only one person responsible and you can meet that person when you look in the mirror to comb your hair, shave your face or put on your makeup. That is the person responsible!!! When we abrogate our responsibilies to any form of government, that government, driven by their own narcissism and greed will eventually make us their pons and slaves. It is time to mature, stop blaming congress, the president, the Federal Reserve or government in general. We are the problem!!!
