Carol Phillips has a problem -- a big one, but a common one.

<sarcasm>
Stop whining! This is the USA, the home of the free. If you, through utter stupidity or gross laziness, <*> lost your job and didn't get another one with benefits, don't blame me! If you can't pay your medical bills, do without! Donate your body to Science, and you won't even have to pay for your burial plot (ask the recipient to burn the remains and dump them out back). The good news: Maybe you won't be able to afford food and will slim down and not need the medical care you will not be getting.

To repeat: This is America. We don't like the meddling Nanny State. Socialized medicine will destroy healthcare for all us rich folks. Shut up and drop dead like a good girl!
</sarcasm>

Maybe the Healthcare system will save huge sums of money treating the complications of untreated diabetes if Ms Phillips goes broke and qualifies for Medicaid or survives long enough to go on Medicare. Then again, maybe the US ought to join the civilized world.

<*> or because your boss offshored your job, but that was your fault as well: Should have begged for a pay cut.
