Will we become a society of Blanche DuBois-es when it comes to our medical bills under the Republican health care legislation?
It seems so, as Bloomberg notes that: “Crowdfunding platforms such as GoFundMe and YouCaring have turned sympathy for Americans drowning in medical expenses into a cottage industry.”
Medical crowdfunding on GoFundMe accounted for $930 million of the $2 billion raised in 2016.
So, here’s America’s choice: (i) everybody pays something to care for all; (ii) you pay $10 for an aspirin to cover the guy without insurance; or (iii) we become a society of beggars who have to rely on the kindness of strangers.
Crappy choices, but which one is best for the general good of society?
