Another nightmare story of US healthcare in Michigan

Copied from Americablog News! Ageekymom writes: We have insurance (with a 30% co-pay.) Our 19 year old son had open-heart valve replacement surgery last July. He passed away the day after the surgery. The bill was over $116,000 for 2 days in the hospital. The $30,000+ co-pay was (thank God!) picked up by a Michigan state fund for children/young adults with his type of birth defect. I can’t imagine what people do if they are not eligible.
Neither my husband or I is currently working. We pay almost $900/month for our crappy health insurance. It’s obscene!

I know Americans want healthcare. But they better wrest it from the AMA, Big Pharma and Big Insurance. They are going to kill and bankrupt every single one of you and they won’t stop until they make sure that every healthcare dollar goes to them.
