    “Most of the 4,000 doctors who received at least $1 million from Medicare in 2012 billed mainly for giving patients injections, infusions and other drug treatments.”
    That why many people believe doctors are over-paid.

  3. Prescott says:

    It is all about money, isn’t it.

      Isn’t it possible that democrats want to help people, therefore doctors who decide to treat those patients receive the bulk of them?

    “Many Drug Prescriptions Go Unfilled”

    People go to the doctor to make sure they’re not dying, the majority of prescriptions that were not filled are simple. Those ailments can be healed over time.

    • A. Shleifer says:

      “People go to the doctor to make sure they’re not dying”
      What a simple and innocent expectation.

  5. Trent says:

    “Across the country, an estimated 356,268 people with mental illnesses including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia are in prisons and jails, compared to just 35,000 in state hospitals — a tenfold difference.”

    • Lucas says:

      The amount of mental patients increases because the payment per individual is higher there than in mental institutes.

  6. Jordan says:

    “Did Obama warn about …Obamacare?”

  7. Trent says:

    “Washington Post fact checks TV ad Barrack Obama ran against John McCain and finds that all the scary predictions actually came true”
