A man goes to emergency with problems breathing - 4 days later he's in hock for over $450,000...

Read the comments on the bottom. All these fox-news shows about how Amurica has better health care than anyone else is BS. No first-world country would trade their system for ours. Our infant mortality rate is higher than Cuba's. Our costs are higher than anyone's. No transparency.

Stop the insanity. Maybe you live, maybe you don't - but your family loses everything you've worked your entire life for. How many of us could retire a decade sooner if not for health insurance costs?
