The thieved, gangster-run prison-state of Amerika is notorious for being hostile to what it calls, "communism". Instead, Amerikans are ego-stroked with claims that they're innovative, go-getters in a land of opportunity.
This BS means the sheeple are more likely to throw off protections to their rights, not that the goons & thugs ever offer those rights to the sheeple.
Most Americans are deathly afraid to go to the hospital these days – and it is because of the immense pain that it will cause to their wallets.
. . .
As you will read about below, some hospitals mark up treatments by 1,000 percent.
In other instances, basic medical supplies are being billed out at hundreds of times what they cost providers. For example, it has been reported that some hospitals are charging up to 30 dollars for a single aspirin pill.
. . .
They know that in our lowest moments we are willing to pay just about anything to get better or to make the pain go away. And so they very quietly have us sign a bunch of forms without ever telling us how much everything is going to cost. Eventually when the bills come in the mail, it is too late to do anything about it.

By the time Steven D. died at his home in Northern California the following November, he had lived for an additional 11 months. And Alice had collected bills totalling $902,452. The family’s first bill — for $348,000 — which arrived when Steven got home from the Seton Medical Center in Daly City, Calif., was full of all the usual chargemaster profit grabs: $18 each for 88 diabetes-test strips that Amazon sells in boxes of 50 for $27.85; $24 each for 19 niacin pills that are sold in drugstores for about a nickel apiece. There were also four boxes of sterile gauze pads for $77 each. None of that was considered part of what was provided in return for Seton’s facility charge for the intensive-care unit for two days at $13,225 a day, 12 days in the critical unit at $7,315 a day and one day in a standard room (all of which totaled $120,116 over 15 days). There was also $20,886 for CT scans and $24,251 for lab work.

Obamacare, named after the so-called "leader of the civilised World", has just made this thieving even worse. It is easier to thieve when the victim is the taxsucker and the one holding the purse strings is some bureaucrat. Poodleville's National Harm Service also overcharges the taxsucker, paying 1,000% over market rates for office equipment as well as buying tens of millions of doses of Rummyflu for bogus bird and swine-flu pandemics.
This is on top of the fact that the so-called doctors are nothing more than pill pushers for the snake-oil corporations too.
Still, it could be worse. Poodleville's National Harm Service simply lets you starve and dehydrate to death under the Liverpool Kill Pathway or the equally negligent "Do not resuscitate" policy for the "surplus population" of elderly.
Better to try traditional Chinese medicine and stop eating amerikan gangster-modified krudburgers too.
