I am not happy about the ballooning costs of health care in my area. I had to take my daughter to the emergency room for profuse vomiting. I was ticked off cause here I am covered in baby puke, waiting 2 hours to get in because people(don't know legal status), have freakin' COLDS!!!! I don't even see a doctor-but a very rude physicans assistant who wonders why a three year old might cry when a clumsy nurse inserts an IV and blood spurts everwhere, stay for 4 hours until the condition is stabilized and leave with a prescription. And for all this it costs $4000!!! Thank God my husband has good insurance. I live on the border now but we have lived in a few places, and it has never cost so much for health care. It didn't even cost that much to give birth to my daughter. Then I read about people in Juarez who call the El Paso ambulance to come pick them up, and a certain hospital here who will pick you up at the border, fully knowing your legal status, and give them any healthcare they need, knowing they are probably broke.
