    Third knee surgery, just had it, in hospital..Treated by a boatload of doctors and nurses. Eating awesome food, being constantly asked if I'm in pain or how am I doing..

    Total damage for me from these three operations - less than 300$ so far. :)

    Don't mean to offend anyone or any nation's system, but it's moments like these that I really feel that I'm getting something back from the society I pay insane taxes to.

    Happy IMing everyone! I'll put my 4 weeks of sick leave to a good use for sure! :D Keep making money, everyone!

    Its not about high or low,its about the right level for taxation. Too low and you can't provide any services, too high and you cause people to move to other countries.

    The United States has a bad health care system due to to many middle men making a profit off tax payers money. Its pointless to give out bloated contracts when you can hire more people yourself at a lower rate,and get more services for your money. Same goes for auto insurance industry, its so costly to insure your automobile due to the fact that the insurance companies have to pay repair shops instead of owning them. They could be onlybe paying out $10-15 an hour on labor costs instead of $40-70.

    Well where are you located? You are certainly not in the US with no insurance being treated like that.
