The health system penny-wise pound-foolish. And I'm sick & on disability. Can't go to the hospital, because there is nothing they can do for me. Can't go to the doctor, unless I want to get on a plane, because there are no doctors in all of New England that treat my health problems. That's because the government & industry spend less than $.12 on researching a cause & cure for my disease & they've found nothing in the 26 yrs I've been sick. However, I've been on disability for 15 yrs & get $1000+/mo in disability & the majority of the people w/ my disease wind up on disability. Imagine how much money would be saved if they spent the money on curing diseases instead of warehousing us. But we make lots of money for the drug companies. Do the drugs work. No, but we'll try them for a while & there is always somebody new getting sick.
Penny-wise pound-foolish for the american people, but money making for corporations.
