    Not a joke, actually. Medical leeches, and medical maggots, are in common and effective use in modern medicine. Both are classified by the FDA as “live medical devices.” Leeches have several potential applications, and are especially useful to control clotting and improve circulation in cosmetic, reconstructive and reattachment surgery. Typically, they run around $8 apiece, plus.

    Actually the insurance companies are the modern leeches.
    I heard on the BBC that Americans pay over 7G per annum on average for health care, the most in the world. The next highest amount is 3G and they get twice as better care than we do.

    Radish, and that thar is the good ole unregulated capitalism that we want in the good ole US of A. Those Europeans are pansies using that socialism and communism. we are for freedom and individual rats to go die in that ditch without any hand outs from Obama. We is free here, boy free.

    Typical of a liberal, Oliphant seems to believe government was created only to take of people instead of simply insuring the liberties to create your own achievements.

    How about government being used to represent the common man and woman, to protect them from the predatory groups — be they other nations or big businesses? Go read up on Republican Teddy Roosevelt and weep for a nation where the Democrats are to the right of a Republican from 1908.

    The simple fact that health care corporations are a business and like any business their business is to provide profit.

    “Ask not what your country can do for you”…. Kennedy could never be a democrat today.

    Kennedy was speaking to those who were already well off. He ran on a platform of social justice & economic fairness. Now, Kennedy would have to run as a Green or something. Heck, Ronald Reagan would be moderate Democrat in modern politics.

    .
    It isn’t. It is now the largest predatory group bleeding the common man and woman.

    Prove it. I think Wal-Mart is bigger. Or McDonald’s. Or the petrochemical industry.

    Yeah, that’s the other $192 of Oliphant’s $200 user fee. I’d guess that it’s probably about right, too.
