It's such a complicated sejubct. After all, the health care reform bill is 2,700 pages. Only a super brain I would image could understand it or an idiot with an attitude. If you only paid $ 1,800 for your treament that's remarkable. To say the least I was surprised by reading that total especially after all of the medical care you received. Sad to say, however, right now we are in the midst of a whirlpool of lies from both sides. Lies, misinformation, spin has eroded any truth about health care reform from both sides. It has become a hyper ugly social situation revealing the worst in us as human beings.
