I'm baffled
 
I just learned that the average cost for staying at hospital per day is $4,350, or $24,000 for five days.

Crazy...how can this be? This is in U.S., btw.

Eheh, yup, sounds like America. America is really third world when it comes to health care . . and maybe some other lacking institutions . . . everyone else knows this, but American media is really so full of pride that Americans are disbelieving when they learn the hard truth about their country.
Did you know that there is no law in America that says you cannot present lies in the news? That's right- American news networks can outright lie, and it is not illegal. Ronald Reagan got rid of that law- before him, news in America was actually quality. That's why Fox News isn't allowed in Canada (because we still have our law outlawing the fabrication of national news). America is shockingly right-wing. Everything is driven by money.

Good point, I did not hear about this law. I didn't know there was a law concerning media. Crazy!

Hopital bills are definately holding me down. I had a couple visits in the past few years, no more of that though. I would have to lose a limb before I go back.
