The time frame was March 13 to March 21. The exchange rate around this time period was about 17.5 which would make the USD cost app. $27,000.”
Wondering what this would cost in the US, I googled around and found things like this:
“For patients not covered by health insurance, valve replacement surgery typically costs from about $80,000-$200,000 or more with an average, according to an American Heart Association report , of $164,238, not including the doctor fee. A surgeon fee can add $5,000 or more to the final bill.”
This was only for the valve replacement. The price for a simple bypass in the US runs to $50,000 to $70,000 at the lower end. What the bypasses would add to the replacement, I don’t know, and shudder to think.
The huge difference in price between American and other care occurs in almost everything.
Transfer that to the UK – obviously, we have the NHS and 18 month waiting lists. Some of you clever Trevors have it sorted, you go private, you have your BUPA or whatever, all is well. You can grin at this. Most have queues but also, near free care.
Who is paying? Taxpayer of course. Which taxpayers? Well obviously the indigenous but also anyone who has paid in at some time, including foreigners.
Therefore, our beef is not with any of these, the ones who’ve paid their dues, but with the freeloaders. Where to find them? Well, in the ghettos of course and at demonstrations.
Round ’em up, bundle them off. This is not racist, anti-foreigner, it’s anti-freeloader.
