I don't smoke but good job showing you just assume crap. Whole point of the screen name. Explains why you think it actually costs $700+ to move an ambulance from point A to point B.
I think you may need a cigarette or something. You seem could be having a nic-fit. I invite you to report me, I would be curious to what you would say. As much as everyone would like an ambulance to cost $50, its just not possible no matter how much you scream, kick, cry, or justify. But if you could do it for that, I feel you have a moral obligation to start a hospital and offer your services to them. like I said, you would save America hundreds of billions of dollars. You have my vote.
Again, you are claiming I have your vote and you are ignoring votes don't get you in charge of a hospital, money does. Stop ignoring facts. I never said the cost has to be brought all the way down to $50. You are still claiming that a $700+ charge for a $50 service is acceptable. Sounds like you would make a great owner of a hospital since that is how they currently do business. Rarely is no service applied. Two valid trips of an ambulance priced at $75 for just the response would have covered the one time it wasn't needed. But you are still arguing that a law from congress is the only possible solution. It is a money hungry business. Shareholders and owners want their money and until that changes, hospitals will charge $700+ for a $50 service when no service was given.
