    Medical Tourism

    This is a polyanna capitalist way of saying our health system is so fucked up that people are no willing to travel 1/2 way around the world to have common medical surgeries. Thailand, Costa Rica, etc.

    One can have a heart bypass in Thailand, preceded or followed by 2 weeks relaxing in country for far less than the procedure costs in the U.S. -- potentially EVEN with "insurance."

    THAT is the measure of how twisted and vulgar our h(w)ealth system has become.

    I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires. - Susan B. Anthony
