118. K &R this critical topic.
Incredible piece of sleuthing, GO. No wonder our Republican overlords don't want universal healthcare, a gravytrain this huge is far too lucrative to consider derailing. I wonder how many other aspects of medical care are ruled by anticompetitive practices? My guess would be most of them. If the military can pay $300 for a hammer, I'm sure hospitals wouldn't balk at $300 tongue depressers (particularly when they can pass the cost straight on to the patient - marked up of course).

The fact that BushCo's slimy fingers are all over this is the least surprising part. I just hope I'm not in hospital when Cheney needs his inevitable heart transplant; I might suffer fatal complications if I happen to be a match.
