The main reason i want it is because we are a Supposed to be the “Best” but other Nations have Free College and Healthcare because they know that in the 21st Century you need a higher education than High School and a Healthcare system that ensures your citizens are healthy so they are at work more and not on benefits for disability.

  1. This is just the tip of the iceberg compared to the fraud ran by many agencys. False billing is nothing new and our people suffer for these perpetrators wicked dealings. On the healthcare end and insurance end!

    • @preciouslogic77 – Yes. It’s a terrible character flaw, especially in Drs or Nurses – because your life, (or a loved one’s), is in their hands!

      It’s one of the “7 Deadly Sins.”
