What do you think, caused the Medical costs to become so astronomical?
Was it the nature of capitalism to extract as much profit from the value of a product, as possible. And of course, what amount would we not pay to be healthy? Is capitalism of this sort, taking an unfair advantage of our desire to not be physically miserable or dying?

Do we factor in the Medicare, Medicaid provisions and non payers, as a source of increased prices, because of their discounted and written off income sources?
Is it the specialized facilities, medicines, equipment and cost of training the professionals of the field?
Could it be all of the above?
