Health Industry in the US

To call it a Health Industry is a joke really - it's nothing but a money grubbing bunch of pigs at the frickin trough gobbling up all of the dollars that they can before us saps get the idea that they are stealing from us blind...
Yes I have had enough of the MGB (Money Grubbing Bastards)
Some things in my personal life recently have made me very very aware of how dysfunctional the whole industry is. From the hospitals, to the insurance agency's (DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED!), to the government that has their sticky little paws in the trough too. It's just one huge machine to squeeze more money out of the poor and middle classes.
I pay $550 a month for my health insurance, which isn't bad by alot of standards. For being a single person and getting it through my chamber of commerce , I really can't complain. HOWEVER... add that up... $6600 a year - now I know I don't use enough during the year to even come close to that figure if I was to pay out of pocket for anything that the insurance covers ... even the incident in the emergency room this year. So what am I paying for? I am paying for two things - The first and main in my mind is I am paying INCASE something major happens to me health wise - the second is for endless layers of bureaucrats, pen pushers, money misers, and jackasses who need to make a living off the useless paper-shuffling that they seem to do.
"Trav are you pissed off???"
Between the Hospital almost killing my Father - which trust me... WILL see a court of law - To me waiting for my prescriptions and being told that my insurance was CANCELED today... when I need the medicine for nerves of all things, and having to deal with that whole mess... I am about fed up with the whole damn shebang a bang.
What can we do? As far as I can see it... we are all screwed.
The downfall of any society is bureaucracy - when every little aspect of life has a stack of papers attached to it that need to be filed in triplicate then you are getting near the end. Even Rome in it's decline wasn't as bad as this. Time to get out the fiddle and play a little jig.
I did mention before that I am a Jeffersonian Anarchist right?
