random discovery

Typically a visit to the emergency room cost under $1500, and a medical bankruptcy is usually against a debt that is under $10,000. Yeah, it's expensive (and justifiably so), but people are quite happy to take out car loans for much more than that.

About one out of every five dollars of the United States Federal Budget is for health expenses; e.g. medicare, medicaid, and tricare.
And yet all that money from the fed is not enough to keep medical expenses from being the #1 cause of bankruptcy in the U.S. When will the politicians finally learn that free-market =/= anarchy?
