5. That six month waiting period is so cruel -
among the other stupidities and inequities of this bastardized muddle that always stood out for me. Why make people wait six months? Hoping they'll die? You can bankrupt yourself with six days care in this country, hell - six hours in some instances - never mind six months. All it can do is make people sicker by the time they can get care - presuming they can afford it, which most won't be able to - and what the hell does "affordable" mean anyway?

Every time I see someone tout this mess as a victory the top of my head blows off.
