64. I think this story just shows how cruel the system is
Edited on Wed Dec-07-11 12:28 PM by AZ Progressive
The Government is almost as cold hearted as the corporations that control it. In the name of order, unsympathetic and inhumane treatment of people in need is almost routine in the government. In many government programs, there could be stringent and lengthy requirements that probably make it too easy for many people to fall through the cracks. Why? Because the Government actually tries to help as few people as possible in this country, despite the public rhetoric.

As a result, many people have to suffer or even die (due to lack of medicaid) that didn't have to.
