I’ll put my money on Sickneglect. It’s obvious, our current healthcare system is not working.
We’re just now starting to see the stats of how truly unfair, inefficient and greedy our system has become. People are dying everyday because they don’t have enough insurance. In 2004, the Institute of Medicine estimated that 18,000 unnecessary deaths occured in the U.S. because of lack of insurance. It seems, that adequate healthcare in this country is not a right, it is a luxury. And amidst the economic crisis, it’s certain that the numbers of uninsured will only increase (beyond the 50 million who are currently without insurance).
Good choice on the ring finger… But pretty disgusting that Rick even had to make that choice.
Thankfully, there’s hope. We CAN make a difference. Start by hosting a discussion:
