Now, that's just real independent, isn't it?
From the article:
"It's fine if Mack wants to skip that whole insurance thing, and it's fine if his followers help it him out now. It's not fine that Mack wants everyone else in the country to be put in the same untenable, horrible, crippling situation of having both poor health and overwhelming medical bills. It would be nice to think that this foray in the real world might change Mack's mind about Obamacare, but I'm not holding my breath."

There is a great deal of hubris when it comes to the attacks on healthcare reform, now the shoes is on the other foot what the anti-ACA camp

Bloody - flash cutting me off mid sentence. The anti-ACA camp's rhetoric about death panels is ironic that they are in reality being run by the insurance companies for many years. But then people like Sarah Palin Sarah,can lie through their teeth, tell the press that up is down, that a report finding them guilty of various abuses of power as Alaska's governor in fact actually "completely exonerates" them and everyone will stand around and pretend like it's just another point of view. It is a sorry state of affairs that some people are all so willing to die for a political point that is going to put many other people's lives too.

There ought to be a basic Universal Health Care System in place for everyone. Unfortunately, because our world is so fragmented, we're nowhere near this. But, it would prevent a lot of otherwise unnecessary and needless hassle and expenditure.

At least I feel sorry for that jackass.

He is well known, might have people in his life that have a few dollars to help him out, but how about the millions of other Americans that are not well known and everyone in their life is struggling they they are. Is that the American Health Care system, must use the Go Fund Me and beg people to send money?

I'm sorry he and his wife are facing this situation, but many before him have had to face the same thing, have lost everything they own, their homes, their children's college funds and their future, having to deal with the illness and worry about where they will live once they can't pay both the medical and the rent, yet if they don't pay the medical they die so don't need to worry about where they live.

I don't wish ill on anyone but it's about time that the cases are aired and displayed for all to see. This russian roulette of a health careless system we have is just that.......playing with every Americans life. Even what we have now with the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare as it's more commonly called, still doesn't cover a lot of people and the overall health careless system in this Country is complicated and still too expensive.

I recall a woman who was pregnant standing daily with me at the bus stop while we got our children on the bus for school. She had no health insurance and was receiving no medical care. I mentioned that in January of the year that the ACA was going to start, she should sign on to receive prenatal care. Oh no she said, I'll not sign onto Obamacare, I'll go without health care before I sign onto that. I said well if I was pregnant I'd want to have medical attention for my child to make sure everything was going okay. Well she said she'd rather die than to sign up for Obamacare. Well she didn't die, but the baby did, in her 8th month of pregnancy. Had she medical perhaps that outcome might of been different.

Ignorance is a dangerous thing.
