Part of the cost being driven up is the fault of the medical community too. Bad doctors and so much of the crap being sold should be put away but many times they aren't. Common sense should rule peoples minds but then once you are sick or hurt to the point that you need to go to a doctor your mind isn't in tip top shape so you must depend on someone else for help. I have seen so many things at this point that are utterly disgusting in the insurance, legal and medical fields I don't put much stock in any of them. When I started looking at FDA, EPA, plus the other agencies back in 2007 and what they have let get into the system for the sake commerce that is affecting peoples lives/health it infuriated me. Now in the past two years I learn that I suffered through surgeries that could have been prevented I am even more aggravated at the whole medical community and their insurance companies. If Congress and judges are going to continue giving the chemical companies, big pharma and big agra a free pass the people as a whole do not have much of a chance at staying healthy. If Congress is not willing to put the brakes on and clean up the whole what good does any of it do for the people to have them there in offices in DC or anywhere else in government to represent them?
