Interesting articles say that in 2008 560,000 US patients went overseas for surgical procedures and suggests that 1.6 million will be doing that by 2012.
So let's see...we hand out visa's for people to come to school here and become doctors, then they go back home, and and use the fact that we have a Federally protected monopoly in health insurance to service all the people being screwed by that system?
And who said the free market was a failure?
LOL you can't keep a free market down, can you !
