Big deal. Do the science on this, you'll see it's a real snore. Divide the medicare payouts by the number of patients, and you'll discover the fees for services are not at all unusual. The people charging the fees went to school many years after college to do what they do, their detractors didn't. They well invested in equipment which twenty years ago was transitioning from the theoretical to the practical, their detractors didn't.

This article tells of medical professionals who dare to charge a fee for their services. Oh my! Scandalous! What next? Lawyers who demand payment for time spent in court? Plumbers who expect payment for keeping the water inside the pipes?

There's plenty of medical scandals. Lifespan's greaszeball 'hospital foundation' practices long ago transcended from the merely ghoulish to homicidal. The Affordable Genocide Act has been proven to be what Sarah Palin and many others declared it to be: state sanctioned euthanasia.
