My one rant against society for the day: health care in the United States should be free or low cost. It's ridiculous that there is a window of people that cannot afford private insurance or qualify for Medi-Cal. How do you let someone sit in absolute pain because they have an abscessed tooth and they can't afford a root canal? How do you let a person live on the streets because they can't afford the meds to balance the chemicals in their brain? How do you look someone in the eye that has been diagnosed with cancer and tell them to go home to wait to see if they qualify for help?
I shouldn't have to jump through firey hoops to take care of me or my child.
