U.S. Elderly Incur 43.6 Percent Of Nation's Hospital Bills
The study, conducted through the federal Department of Health and Human Services, also shows while the elderly are just 12 percent of the population the group incurred 43.6 percent of the nation's hospital bills, totaling nearly $329 billion.
Of course we are not shocked at all by this news. We’re just curious how a nationalized healthcare program, touted by Democrats as an election year issue, is going to change this fiscal reality.
