What do you have to do these days to get any sort of health care? One unemployed man found the answer, rob a bank and get arrested:
When you receive this a bank robbery will have been committed by me. This robbery is being committed by me for one dollar,” he wrote. “I am of sound mind but not so much sound body
He interviewed with the local press explaining why he took such desperate measures. The man was laid off from his job of 17 years. Then, he lost his health insurance. He tried to get help, from everywhere, but all he could get was food stamps. His health was deteriorating rapidly. Finally, he realized where he could get free health care, prison. He needed to get in, so he robbed a bank for one dollar.
Verone has been in jail for a week.
His $100,000 bond has been reduced to $2,000.
He doesn’t intend to pay it. His residence is now the Gaston County Jail.
He goes to breakfast and lunch each day but skips dinner. Dinner means nearly four hours in the general jail population, and Verone said he likes to minimize contact with other inmates.
He got his health care and how many others are committing felonies so they can get food, shelter and medical attention to save their lives?
If we cannot get universal single payer, perhaps all of America should behave as Verone did, so finally, we could all get some health care.
What's wrong with this picture?
