  1. No hospital is withholding procedures because they arent profitable if they are neccessary. If they arent neccessary, then why would they have to provide them? And gouging prices? First you'd have to define what price gouging is. You're argument seems to based around the idea that medicare established reimbursement represents true cost. As shown earlier, it doesnt. A hospital forced to survive off of a pure medicare patient population will require public subsidies to stay afloat. I provide a service. I safely put people to sleep so a surgeon can cut them open, rearrange their parts, and wake them up so they dont even know what happened. What is that worth? Why should i, spending many years in school doing that and taking on risk that can end my career on any given case, do that at "cost"?
  2. I'll go ahead and say... what is so immoral about the healthcare industry turning a profit?
  3. Its difficult to provide costs when costs are largely patient dependant. A lap chole on one person may be more expensive then a lap chole on another based on patient co morbidities.
  4. Id imagine we are close to 2.5 times as unhealthy, obese, smokers, etc then most developed countries too. I give anesthesia for a living and i assure you its a lot easier and less risky to do it on a healthy, non smoker with a normal bmi vs a morbidly obese smoker.
  5. So you advocate the use of publicly funded pell grant money to attend college, is this only up to a certain point or should all of coa be covered by Grant money?
  6. Mercers number came from their website
  7. In addition thats awesome you got to live with your mom. Thats a great advantage many others didnt have.
  8. I dont know what that pictute is of or the source but here is mine that shows the 20k coa. http://college-tuition.startclass.com/l/17814/Middle-Georgia-State-University Also what about mercer?
  9. I get that aspect of it but i wonder as to why cost controls were not set in place when the government basically guaranteed anyone who got accepted could "afford" to go.
  10. I dont pretend to know why exactly the cost of attendance has grown exponentially over the last decade or so but its creating a large barrier to one of the only ways a lot of people can move up in class.
  11. I should clarify, it was hyperbolic. Was referring to wfw saying he paid for college setting pins at a local bowling alley in a previous thread from before my break.
  12. But if you want to see how cappys experience translates to today, according to mercer university's website the yearly cost of attendance is $50,282... but if you stay with your parents its $41,696. Macon state, now middle georgia state university, lists cost of attendance as $20,175 Some simple math puts the total cost between 120k-140k.
  13. I went to college during dubyas admin and it's not applicable to today
