My mother was in the hospital for around 3 days and the cost was creeping on 100k.
It's an insane, unbreakable cycle. you have to have insurance to even approach paying those costs which are jacked way up because insurance is paying for it.
any ******* attempt to fix this horrible mess is branded socialism = communism = Unamerican = enemy=
