I watched a US Senator railing against the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) last month, just before the repeal was kicked out.
He forgot some sort of ID and decided to pay cash for something innocuous that turned out to be a fortune (like $15 for 10 aspirin, or something)
He blamed it on the ACA, not the inflated prices induced by the insurance companies (which the ACA is intended to control)
... fuckin moron
Before we all bought insurance for pets, the bills were relatively low.
Once insurance for pets became popular, the prices for treatment went through the roof (unless you have insurance), so it's in the insurance companies interest to inflate costs because a 20% margin on £1000 is far better than a 20% margin on £100.
Upshot: A cat with a bad leg could cost £1500 to get fixed, and some total cuntoids will pay factors of 10 more.
..in my book, the cat either copes with the bad leg, or the cat is getting a wee jag and the other £1450 will go to a charity for kids.
