how does the nurses association feel about people not paying bills for services they request?

wonder how the nurses association would feel if the hospitals would just stop paying its bills or its nurses?

these n word people who don't pay bills are not victims here, they are lazy losers who could pay bills if they got off welfare and got jobs like the rest of the world does.

stop your whining already the rest of the world is sick of your loser whining and paying you for doing nothing.

we need to close the welfare offices and make them job centers.

I suggest we teach these utility absconders a lesson by tethering their service to an exercise treadmill.
You want water start walking.
Electricity, same thing. Anyone else see this noisy red helicopter?
