If you thought banking in our time was a miserable racket -
which it is, of course, and by "racket" I mean a criminal
enterprise - then so-called health care has it beat by a country
mile, with an added layer of sadism and cruelty built into its

will say what anything costs and nobody wants to because it
would break the spell that they work in an honest, legit

service from one "provider" to the next or even one patient to
Anyway, the costs are
obscenely inflated and concealed in so many deliberately
deceptive coding schemes that even actuaries and professors of
economics are confounded by their bills.
The services are
provided when the customer is under the utmost duress, often
life-threatening, and the outcome even in a successful recovery
from illness is financial ruin that leaves a lot of people

It is a hostage racket, in plain English, a disgrace to the
profession that has adopted it, and an insult to the nation. All
the idiotic negotiations in congress around the role of
insurance companies are a grand dodge to avoid acknowledging the
essential racketeering of the "providers" - doctors and

The American public
and its government have been adequately informed about the gross
and lawless chiseling rampant in every quarter of medicine. The
system is one of engineered criminality.

There are only two plausible arcs to this story. One is that the
nation might face the facts and resort to the Single Payer
system found in virtually every other nation that affects to be
civilized. There is no other way to eliminate the deliberate
The other outcome
would be the inevitable collapse of the system and its eventual
re-set to a much less complex, cash-on-the-barrelhead, local
clinic-based model with far less heroic high-tech interventions

Both outcomes would
require jettisoning the immense overburden of administrative

denying treatment to their sick and hapless "customers"

obviate future episodes like it.

bankers and ultimately to the Glass-Steagall Act of 1932,
which kept banking relatively honest and stable until its
nefarious repeal in 1999 under President Bill Clinton -
which led rapidly to a new age of Wall Street malfeasance,
The US Senate needs
to set up an equivalent of the Pecora Commission to thoroughly
expose the cost racketeering in medicine, enable the prosecution
of the people driving it, and propose a Single Payer remedy for
flushing it away.

Justice can certainly apply the RICO anti-racketeering statutes

I don't know why it
has not done so already - except for the obvious conclusion that
our elected officials have been fully complicit in the medical

congressman who trafficked in medical stocks during his years
