This picture illustrates the real problem with healthcare in this country. A friend of mine recently went to the emergency room for stomach pains (turned out to be a kidney stone). When she told the billing department that she wasn't covered by either of the two big middlemen, government or big insurance, she got a whopping 75% reduction in her bill. The free market works. Inserting huge bureaucracies between the patient and provider drives up costs.
