To interpret that the expensive treatment is the best treatment and moreover to think I'm not paying for the Healthcare I get shows how out of touch most Americans are with their own world. Including the fact that they stops thinking about the humans on the financial class below them who don't have health insurance sponsored by the employer or those who have jobs below their current pay grade and have insurance which have higher co-pay and deductables. It's obvious even to the least sensible individual that insurance is what drives all these unnecessary costs and also for-name "Not for Profit" but in actuality "For Profit" medical centers goes hand in hand with the insurance companies to drive the costs higher and higher. But still, there's more than the believable number of Americans who think paying 1000 bucks per month and getting a okay insurance is the best thing they had in their life!
