Response to brush (Reply #9)

NO Medicaid expansion. For profit hospital. 50+, un/underemployed? Get seriously hurt, get a Band-Aid (figurative) at E.R. = big Bill, temporarily "stabilized" (of course no permanent fix, surgery, etc. & certainly no follow-up care) suffer silently/ die quickly. The ACA did shit for these people.
UNIVERSAL health care is the ONLY solution.

example- a 50 year old works under the table $6 an hour, week end nights only, as a "bar-back." Fight breaks out at bar (duh) bar-back tears ACL trying to stop disturbance.
Taken to hospital. No insurance? Here's a $500 knee brace ($20 at WAL MART)...have a good life, please pay at the door on your way OUT in a wheelchair. Pain? OK, here is a prescription for Tylenol...DEA says so..
