I love the lawyer’s responses. And defensive medicine is all about making sure you’re healthy, right? Which is why so many tests are ordered if a patient shows even the slightest bit of being unwell. Of course, defensive medicine is only for those people who actually GO to the doctor, and there are still a lot of people who avoid that.

Its slightly inaccurate. The government will always ask for more taxes.
