78% of those filing for bankruptcy have medical insurance...
Yes, but their loss of income as a result of not being able to work is considered a medical expense in a bankruptcy filing. Making it more likely that medical expenses really a tipping point.

Republicans Who Refused to Do Their Jobs Are Complaining About Getting Nothing Out of Shutdown

For Republicans to complain they did not “get anything” out of their government shutdown and damage to economic growth including killing jobs is an outrage. It is true that Republicans measure their success by the harm they cause the American people and the economy, but even the greediest Republican should be pleased they drew their congressional salary, cost the nation $24 billion, cut nearly a percentage point off of GDP, and killed hundreds-of-thousands of jobs adequate recompense for shutting down the government. However, it was not enough for Republicans and they intend to make up for it by heading into the next stage of their “work” resolute they will get “something big” for not doing their jobs when government funding runs out and the debt ceiling needs to be raised.

An overwhelming majority of Americans worried about the Republican shut down’s impact on the nation, with 71% saying the shutdown hurt the economy, and 73% saying it had hurt the country as a whole, and various economists’ assessments demonstrate the people’s worries are well-founded. What Americans should really be worried about is how much damage the next stage of Cruz’s extended battle will inflict on the nation, because if Republicans think costing the nation $24 billion, a drop in GDP, and hundreds-of-thousands of jobs lost was “not getting anything,” the people are in for a world of hurt because although congressional Republicans’ are employees of the people, they cannot terminate them for a year.

you're talking about people living week to week, not functioning members of society...
ObamaKKKare won't save them...
FACT: "Fewer than one in four Americans have enough money in their savings account to cover at least six months of expenses, enough to help cushion the blow of a job loss, medical emergency or some other unexpected event, according to the survey of 1,000 adults. Meanwhile, 50% of those surveyed have less than a three-month cushion and 27% had no savings at all."

So, using your "logic" Republicans are just as likely to be "non functioning members of society" as Democrats. In fact, I would say more likely since they just love to buy things they can't afford.

A one-track mind trying to multitask with 18-tracks is hopeless.

Of course you have no need to deflect. Everything goes in one ear and out the other. You swallow and excrete in one fell swoop.

Your attempts at corralling me into one political camp or the other is about as juvenile and primal as hooting insults at the opposition during a football game.

I flew to DC and sat in my Congressmen's office and personally told him I DO NOT SUPPORT bailouts of any kind.

One of my Senators was in town, but I did not keep that appointment.
