Just taking your military bases out of japan and the Philippines will save the USA 5 billion a year.Build public hospitals with the money saved, or pay off the deficit.

In ten days I just racked up $80K in hospital charges.

I want to apologize to all the real Americans here, the ones who never have used any financial assistance, food stamps, grants, and Medicare.

I used Medicare. I know. I just shoulda accepted being $80K - $8K/day - in debt instead.
Thanks from RNG and Hollywood

It is not what you were charged, but why you were charged $80 and what would the cost be without federal government regulations, legal expenses, insurance expenses, etc., and how the states and communities were able to handle it before the federal government got involved.

Expect more of this and worse if the Trump of Orange gets in the Oval Office.

There is nothing more insulting than to compare the Tienanmen Square protester with the Baton Rouge girl in the street. What was the protestors name and what happened to him? What was the protest about?

$80K

If pigs had wings....

Please spell out your transition plan.

"...and how the states and communities were able to handle it before" MRI machines, CAT scanners, citizens who are just looking to file a fat lawsuit, organ transplants, heart valve replacements, hip and knee replacements, and prescriptions for $3,000/bottle antibiotics (prescribed to a friend last week).

Before all of that, doctors made house calls, and charity hospitals were common.
Thanks from Hollywood

The poor commit crimes at far higher rates no matter what color they are.

MRI machines are old, Cat scanners are old, etc.These were all available prior to out of control medical inflation due to the federal government.. $3,000 for a bottle of pills= $5 billion to bring a drug to market because of government regulations. As late as the 1980s there was free market price wars in cities between hospitals.
