Here you go:


We need Government Free Medical Care Zones

Massive inflation in the price of medical care, not to be confused with the price of insurance, is built into the medical industrial complex monopoly.

Maybe we should try hospital ships in international waters 9 miles off shore. Doctors without boarders model could be used.

.

That sounds like an awesome idea. 9 miles off shore.

Haha

This is amazing! Screw the medical establishment. 3D-printing is definitely a major blow to the corporatocracies.

We just need a open-source data file to print 3D-Printer parts and on how to assemble them and then the revolution will be unstoppable.

Something like this?

Not suprising. Anything

Not suprising. Anything medical related military related etc, always needs to be tested certified made sure its probably over designed and that drives the price up. There is also the fact that they just charge alot of money case they can.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
