    I read an article recently where a guy in California was quoted $6900 for an MRI and some other diagnostic imaging. He declined the services, bought a round trip business class ticket to his native India for $1100, stayed at a very nice hotel for a week for $500 and paid $190 for the same diagnostic imaging at the best imaging center in India, and on a state-of-the-art MRI machine. $1790 total. And he even got a nice vacation out of the deal. Total savings: $5110.00 There is something wrong with the way medical services are billed in our country.

    Give the cat a Polly-graph. He's lying.
