22. Nah. Slavery would be if they had no choice. Let's not diminish

what slavery is. There's been huge increase in real enslavement of displaced peoples who can't get o safe places. Tragedies and suffering simply unimaginable, to us and them also not long ago.

Although losing their healthcare would be a huge penalty for some, all affected here can say a big no to working. They do have that option.

Kaiser Foundation says 60% of Medicaid recipients who aren't disabled are already working. Interesting article, Understanding the Intersection of Medicaid and Work. https://www.kff.org/medicaid/issue-brief/understanding-the-intersection-of-medicaid-and-work/

Personal and bureaucratic obstacles to getting oneself declared disabled, mentally or physically, or legally recognized as among one of the other extempted groups, are going to create most victims, of course. We live in a college-level world now, and many people are having grave difficulties functioning in it, before factoring in illness of any kind.
