But get this -- since Medicaid in 1965 -- the average cost of surgery has gone from $8,500 to $125,000 -- a 1300% increase.

1300% increase???? Medicare did nothing but make surgeyr ALL THE MORE EXPENSIVE LIKE CRAZY -- MORE THAN ANY OTHER THING!!!

Now, get this -- my dog had surgery and a week's stay in 24/7 nursing care as a result of a serious uterine infection. The dog nearly died but was treated, cured, recovered, and she's fine now. Total cost of surgery AND a week in 24/7 nursing care was $435.00.
Why so cheap? There is NO HEALTH INSURANCE FOR PETS as a standard practice.

What is the take-away from all this info in this post? Not only should Medicare be reformed -- MEDICARE SHOULD BE TERMINATED. ALL INSURANCES FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN YOUR HOUSE SHOULD BE TERMINATED -- CERTAINLY ALL GOVERNMENT INSURANCES SHOULD BE TERMINATED. INSURANCE LEADS TO SOCIALIZATION. AMERICA IS A FREE CAPITALIST NATION. FREE AMERICA FROM THE GRIPS OF SOCIALISM!!!
