Have bad liver, will travel...

PhotobucketThe Statesman has been putting up some great stuff on medical tourism. For those of you who don't know, it's when someone (say a US citizen) goes to another country to get a medical procedure done. For those of you who don't live in Texas this concept will be alien and a little scary. For those of us who live in Texas, this is basically like a trip down to the clinica in la farmacia, know what I mean?

What the Statesman did stumble onto are plans by insurers to force people from the US to seek treatment in other countries.

See, doctors and nurses? I told you eventually the insurers would fuck you guys like they've been fucking us for years. Still think socialized medicine is bad deal? Still think 'free' trade is awesome? It's pretty scary when you compete against someone who make a tenth of your salary.
