    I am conservative but I am for an upgraded medical system.


    Obama care although primitive and far from perfect.... is a step in the right direction.




    I feel embarrassed as a citizen of this country if we turn our back on LEGAL citizens that need health care.

    The medical world is dominated by unfair prices and it has become more involved in personal profit rather than aiding people in need.

    You ultimately need the dough to get the treatment.:eek: what a joke:mad:

    So..... a Cancer patient or a person w/ a chronic illness cannot get treatment if they do not have the $$$$ to pay for the inflated health care price of this country?

    I hate the medical system of our country
    .

    The Nordic countries have it right......


    Illegals are not included in this thread. Phuck them:mad:


    my Uncle's eko cardio gram was like $4,000.... what a joke and he is a retired teacher.:eek: (clearly he does not have poor insurance)

    Was $4k the price he paid or the cost on a bill that the insurance co. dealt with?

    OTOH I am a retired state worker and have stress echo cardiograms twice yearly and have never had to pay a dime.. my carrier is United Health.

    Had an outpatient heart procedure last Feb, did not pay anything..

    I have had a couple of brief hospitalizations in the past couple of years and never paid a dime..

    Out patient knee surgery last December and never had to pay anything..

    Cut my head open last month, had to go to the ER for stitches, did not have to pay anything...

    This is anecdotal as is your case, but from my pov the health care that I access is incredibly good..

    the insurance picked his 4,000 up....... it is just absurd how such a simple test fetches a huge price tag.:confused:


    I must have misspoke.


    Medical bills are ridiculously over priced------ for even the simplest of tests. :(



    it is crap

    that is what I am getting at

    That may be overpriced, but what information are you basing that assessment on? Any idea what the equipment cost, how much demand there was for it, etc.? (I have no idea.)

    I'm curious. Multiple times now you have stated that you are "conservative" yet you then follow up that statement with liberal thinking.
    What pray tell is your definition of "conservative" and what do you think makes you conservative?

    dude that is the problem w/ American Politics....... The 2 Party system has become extremely polarized and compromising can not happen.......


    Example "your thought sucks b/c you are a stupid liberal"


    Is it wrong to like 1 or 2 policies of a different party?

    I think a combination of ideologies would behoove both parties.

    Just b/c I'm Pro-Death penalty, and don't think illegals deserve the time of day.

    Hey guess what? I also think the fetus has no rights.

    all for embryonic stem cell research:)...... we need to reach our cientific potential, but it is taboo to screw w/ th fetus. (what a joke)

    Just b/c I am mostly conservative does not mean I cannot like some aspects of a different party, I am a realist. Screw this party lineage BS..... it stinks.

    You are aware that "conservative" is not an actual political party right?

    That's only of secondary importance. Just because the insurance company picked up the tab doesn't mean it doesn't affect rates.

    I didn't make a statement about its significance -- I was just wondering what the cost was.
