When you shut down Flow Hospital, there was a big gap to fill. Now we need a hospital for the rest of the folks who have no insurance. Most of them work all there lives and now nothing. Been there done that.

Okay, let's shut down indigent health care for anyone that owns a cell phone, TV, Car worth more than say, 2500 dollars...

At some point the producers are going to stop feeding the parasites. It's getting worse before it gets better.

Have any of you ever seen someone die because they did not have health insurance, and no doctor would perform a surgery they needed? Well I do every day, and let me tell you isn't just people who are bums, it is people who worked all there lives get sick lose there job, and their benefits. If they live in Dallas they can go to Parkland, if they live in Denton , they die!!

Why you dont start looking for some work to do instead start talking about ilegal people,im pretty sure you are a red neck or even white trash with out insured too,looking for some help to lose some weight,more ilegals people pay more taxes that citizens so we also have rights to medical help.

I have a old ass cell phone, shared TV 1999 corola (may worth morethan 2500), but I make 250 a week. How the hell u think I can afford to pay for any doctor or insurance? Im still studying, when I get a good paying job, my paid taxes will save the lives...am I a parasite?
Is it crime to born in poor family? Or being poor after working the entire life???

If you can afford cell phone, TV and Car then you can afford to pay your doctor bills. Even if it is just $25 a month. I bet you spend that a day in eating fast food for breakfast lunch and dinner.

When the U. S. government stops feeding, housing, education, health care, and all the perks they get for free, they will leave to greener pastures. It's so simple.
