I'm a retired Firefighter/EMT who also worked in an Emergency Room and went on calls where people of all ages suffered at home until it was an emergency or in a few cases too late because they had no health insurance. I also saw the ER full of patients with things that should be treated by a family doctor but they had no insurance. And I am guessing that most of those bills don't get paid and so that is why my health insurance and co-pays go up every year & hospitals charge so much for everything. We all pay one way or the other.
People in the USA shouldn't die of very treatable common illnesses because they can't afford insurance. When I was a child people looked out for their neighbor. Cared about other people and were proud of their country. America was the best country in the world. We were better than the rest and envied by most. All of the love and pride we had for the USA and our fellow citizens has been replaced with a mean spirited every man/woman for themselves attitude.
