  1. Capitalisme… here in France we have a good system obtained by the communistes who were in the Résistance during WW2

  2. I love your “If this thing was honest” videos. They touch on issues we all face and you make us laugh while doing it. Roger is always making me bust up. Keep it up, y’all are awesome.

  3. i remember having an ear infection. this was spot on 😂 got charge over $1k for a 2 hour wait and recommendation to walgreens OTC. then seen my regular doctor and paid outta pocket to get my ears flushed

  4. I nearly died in 1997. After a lengthy hospital stay, my doctor wanted me to be on a certain medication. At one of my follow up appointments, I told the doctor I couldn’t take that medication because my insurance refused to cover it. She got on the phone with my insurance company right there in the room where I was having my appointment. What followed was a 20 minute argument as she tried to explain how important the medication was. Finally, my doctor said, “This patient will die without this medication. ” did the insurance agree to cover it? Nope. My doctor was so angry she hung up on them. She told me to wait there. I sat there for almost 30 minutes. When the doctor came back she had a ton of free sample packets of the medication I needed. This doctor had gone through their entire building to take every free sample she could find. She continued to do that for the duration of me needing that drug.

  5. When it’s much cheaper even with insurance to pay to fly to another country, get the prescription drugs, treatments, and surgeries done, pay for it out of pocket there, and pay to fly back than it is to get the same in the country you live in, something is very very wrong with your healthcare system.

  6. I hate greedy capitlaists, the socialist system covers everyone for eveything, no one gets deynied.

  7. So unfortunately for me when I was a broke college student I developed inflammatory arthritis so I had to go to a rheumatologist so I made an appointment I went there I gave the lady at the desk my insurance card and she scanned it and said absolutely nothing and then I started getting $500 bills for the doctors visit because apparently they weren’t in my net work and I called them up and I was like what the hell do you think before I did the appointment you guys could’ve like told me you weren’t in the net work and they didn’t and I negotiated and try to get it paid but it didn’t work and the insurance company would pay so I just never pay the bill cause I was like screw that and the funny part is the doctor let me come like two more times before I started getting the bills so I’m pretty sure there was like three $500 bills. And at the time that would’ve made me more than broke so like I said I was like Yep screw that not paying it so I kept getting mail for a while and eventually it stopped because it was a medical bill they couldn’t garnish my wages that was about 7 8 years ago and I still have never paidAnd I never will screw those guys maybe they should teach the person at the front desk to see if the person is in the network or not

  8. The only we problem we have in the US is bureaucracy, look up Burzynski on cancer.

    Also, remove insurance things would go way cheaper, insurance is a scam.

    Also, Canada and UK systems, have worse health insurance than US, people die waiting not being treated or denied, in the US you die because of insurance companies manipulations in the government and lobbying.

  9. Please do: if Chinese oems were honest about bootloader unlocking (they are actually blocking every request because government wants to be the only with admin access by exploits), The Hated One on YouTube did a video about it (it was huawei specific but I can assure you that zte for example does the same, vivo also)

  10. Unfortunately because every American sues every hospital for every little thing this is where we are. Its our own fault.
