I would suspect that if they charged $30K in the USA--about 3X the price in other countries, a profit would be made and legal, fraud etc would be covered. 10X the price is being a PIG IMO. How can Americans reward a company who charges ridiculous prices because "they can". This is in the end a Healthcare company--Oh right, screw the people.
Why is the price in the USA about $84 K when it is only about $10K in other countries? This is an example of how the USA health system is broken. Physicians and our Government should be outraged that America is charged 5 times or more than other countries. Do you know the price charged in Egypt?
Ask the democrats. Spending without controls and measurable results is reckless and shows a lack of leadership. Where is the beef? hey Hillary--speak up--these are goinbg to be coming to a head in 2 years and they will be your problems. Your silence says you agree.
Roger, Is the info that you are looking for related to the legal issue surrounding BMP's as advertised on TV by a Law Firm?
Sorry to disagree but I believe healthcare with Obama's plan is much like American Education. We spend more than every other country and don't get the results for the cost. Currently American students rank 25th in Math etc. That, in my opinion, is a disgrace and followed closely by our healthcare debacle. America is wasting taxpayer money at an unstainable rate--and you seem OK with the results. Why don't we pay for all of the costs of the Sandy storm so homeowners can rebuild only to be flooded again. First Irene and we paid, now Sandy and we pay again. How many times should the taxpayer buck up?America need s more individula responsibility and in the end a return on the investment. Individual beliefs are fine but should I have to pay for your personal beliefs. The buck has to stop somewhere, sometime. Is there no individual ownership anymore--or just handouts. Sure seems true of education and healthcare.
Sooooo investing --short and long-in the stock market is OK and generates real value? Real value is when I invest and I make money. It is not my responsibility to "save the worker". It is my responsibility to care for my family, legally, and not be a financial burden on the taxpayers.or society. Obamacare, since you brought it up, will add 3.8% to my tax and exactly how does that help me and my family? Again, is it my responsibility to care for everyone who could care less about me and my family? Don't impose someone else's personal beliefs on me and then make me pay for them.
Clearly--education did not make you very smart. Romney was criticized for Bain Capital cutting jobs throughout the campaign but it seems you (supporting Obama) feel it is OK for Stryker to acquire and then cut jobs. Perhaps advanced degrees add more confusion to a simple mind. Job cuts are job cuts regardless of Dem. or Repub.
