For some people charging $99 for a $28 case of water is "price gouging" yet charging $800 for an $8 bag of saline is "healthcare"

 

But some people will just go ahead and pay, without doing anything about people like this, even when they are able to correct the situation. 

 

And, some people will call an attempt to do something about it an act of blood sucking leaches. 

 

 $800 for an $8 bag of saline is "healthcare""

Postman, have you found your first gripe with "affordable" healthcare?  I guess you have your hero to thank for that one.  Did the $800 include "installation services" as well?

Ok, avoiding the healthcare debate, I will toss this one out there.  In Tuscaloosa, the same Hotel Indigo I paid $180.00 for earlier this year is going $859.00 this weekend.  What makes it even crazier, they are playing Colorado St, not Auburn or LSU.  Gouging or supply/demand?

I, actually, thank the pharmaceutical companies for that one, FB! The pharmaceutical companies are worse than water price gougers by a long shot.
