http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/04/health/for-medical-tourists-simple-math.html?hp Is Obamacare a good solution to the mess of a healthcare system we have? Most likely, no. But the article above shows how corrupt our system is. How can you defend our system when it would cost this man over $100,000 for a hip replacement here, but only $13,000 in Belgium? It's funny how without competition or regulation, the free market does the opposite of what it's defenders say it does. This case demonstrates why the legal bribery that our government engages in makes our so-called democracy a sham. It also provides a clear case of how our health care system is far from the best system in the world today.
