Great... Nurses holding an event at a bar... How many health issues are related to ALCOHOL, addictions and mental health issues like OCD.... Now I know what is wrong with our american healthcare system... maybe it is not Obama-care, but maybe the over compensated health care "professionals" and foreign health care workers our corrupt politicians allow ridiculous tax/business breaks to and or allow into this country that take american jobs and the financial resources there-of and support other countries with it... I am gonna love it when our corrupt health care system falls apart and Americans fix it..
