More on healthcare

Thanks to catdaddy for providing this link. Barbara Ehrenreich on the numbers of people not only going into debt because of medical bills but actually being ARRESTED because of those debts. As an exercise for the reader, research the etymology and origins of the word "hospital" and see if maybe they haven't strayed just a WEE bit from the original intent.

I'm sad to say that my state produced Bill Frist and the Hospital Corporation of America. Write Bill a letter and thank him for turning the care of the sick and wounded into a for-profit enterprise. He'll be too busy to answer though, as he's busy trying to get a Constitutional Amendment banning gay marriages. Woot! That'll pay my medical bills.

Here's Ehrenreich.
