    should tell the doctors and hospitals to be satisfied with 70% and quit trying to get blood out of a turnip -- a sick turnip, at that.

    There's more than enough overcharging built into the 'list price' on hospital bills and a lot of doctors' charges that getting 70 cents on the dollar is fine.  A lot of health care is priced in 'funny money'.  

    We're all pretty strange one way or another; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is a dryer setting.
