Health Care: Making A Killing In The Free Market 3

I just re-got in touch with an old, good friend of mine.  Last I knew of him was 15 years ago, when he bought two Porches of similar makes and models, both damaged.

One was damaged in the front; the other in the rear.  He carved them up and re-joined them, to make a perfectly working car.  The tricky part was the gas tank, which had been moved.  (The models were a year apart.)

He’s now, I’m told, making weird contraptions for special effects and fitting frozen turkeys and other things with rocket engines.

Also, the doctor told him he had skin cancer.  And as he doesn’t have health insurance, it would be a mere $7,600 for the doctor to remove it.

So he researched it and bought a pain-killer and some surgical tools from somewhere.  And he cut the cancer out himself.

He said it cost $36.
