How the fuck can it cost half a million dollars to stitch someone up, set a couple of bones, and keep an eye on them for 48 hours in a hospital bed?

This is not a problem that is solved by the free market. This is a problem that's solved by the government providing basic services, which yes, does include healthcare. And I mean providing, not "giving a blank check to your golf buddy who owns a couple of hospitals."
