Maybe you just don't like that medical science says those supplements are a ripoff or worse...potentially deadly in some cases.
Personally I have insurance, and if I get into one of those situations, PLEASE let me DIE I do not want to be saved and owe a trillion dollars to some greedy quack. I'm totally serious. He'll have to earn his country club membership dues elsewhere.
I have insurance, and it's not the answer to everything. You could EASILY end up thousands in debt even WITH insurance. And they aren't big on giving you time to pay it either - I got a CPAP a relatively low cost thing, and within 6 weeks I had paid them in full and they STILL sent it to collections anyway. At that point I seriously said well then f--- you greedy pigs, I actually called them up and dropped the F bomb on them as in WTF do you think you're doing with that and so on. They tried to defend it as their "policy". I say they can go straight to hell it's all about $$$ for them just like every other business but others would at least give you a chance to pay before sending it to collections (they sent me one bill and off to collections, by the time I was in collections it was paid, how nice).
So I have little use for this system of sheer greed, period. Obamacare did NOTHING to solve the issues I saw with it, all it will do is increase my taxes if anything. Thanks Barry, just what I need when the govenrment already takes about half my pay through some form of taxation anyway. Much appreciated!
