The culture of life, part 468b

I foresee a run on federal employees in the wake of the republican-sponsored changes to bankruptcy laws. Apparently despondent over excessive medical bills, the shooter in this case decided jail was a viable alternative to repayment. As more and more Americans are trapped by skyrocketing medical bills, and as fewer and fewer can afford insurance, this solution may start to seem more and more sensible.
Hard luck for the postal carrier, however. I hope future followers of the "Georgia alternative" to homelessness brought on by medical bills do a better job finding non-violent felonies. Or at least targeting those representatives of the federal government who, unlike the hapless mailman, had a hand in creating the double-bind that pushed them to the brink of homelessness.

Well said.

I still cannont fully comprehend the logic (or complete lack there of) of the healthcare system in this country.

We are supposed to be civilized, and advanced and yadda yadda yadda, yet something as seemingly basic and neccassary as healthcare is not readily available for everyone who calls this country home.

It makes me quite livid.
