Steve Posted February 11, 2012 Report Share Posted February 11, 2012 I have no problem with doctors charging whatever they can get away with. I do have a problem with the AMA and similar groups limiting the number of medical schools to create a shortage of MDs with the intention of keeping those salaries so high. Doesn't that sound a bit like a monoply, which is banned by federal laws? Furthermore, why the fark can I NOT use Medicare in Bangkok? There are several hospitals with international standards, US and UK trained Thai MDs. People fly here from all over the world to use them. I live here, but if I want to use my Medicare I have to fly to the US and pay US prices. That is absolute BOVINE DEFECATION. I'm a combat veteran and an ex-PC volunteer. I gave 7 years of my life to the US government. In return, I get treated like an unwanted relative. Makes no sense to me either Flash but I guarantee you the AMA and the medical industry have a problem with it. They have successfully sold the BS that America is the only place you can get quality medical care. The run of the mill shit can be done anywhere on the planet pretty much. America still does the extremely difficult stuff (brain surgery, heart surgery, etc.) better than anyone else just about (although there are always new techniques and procedures and experiemental stuff that come out of France, Russia, Germany, etc. every once in a while). I'm a free market guy myself. I have a cousin in Florida who is a surgeon. What we have in America is NOT the free market. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
