The last time I went to a doctor was in 1984. I was 16. I’m 51. And I was 18 the last time I had health insurance. I think my deductible was $20. Or $50. Now healthcare is inflated. People pay $2,000-$10,000 out of pocket. And doctors inflate your bill. They charge you for unnecessary […] READ MORE
