Barbara Ellen recently got a $660 bill from her healthcare provider for the laughing gas used to moderate her pain from several dental fillings.
It could have been worse. The government could have decided in advance that she didn’t need any painkillers at all.
“You want government-run healthcare? This is what it looks like. People you’ll probably never meet in your entire life, who don’t know anything about you, will decide how much pain you get to live with.”
Naturally government-run healthcare is a Socialist Dimocrat thing. The Socialist Dims believe bureaucrats are uniquely suited to decide such matters for you. Just don’t try to get between a woman and her doctor if she wants an abortion. Killing babies right up to nine months is sacrosanct to a Socialist Dim.
