Somehow, you knew this was going to happen.
The woman who owns a small auto repair shop and is now the lead plaintiff in the case going to the Supreme Court to overturn Obama’s health care reform because she claims she should not be required to have health insurance, has filed for bankruptcy with a bunch of unpaid medical bills.
In other words, she is “an example of exactly the problem that the healthcare law was intended to address”. Her bankruptcy is one of the millions that will raise the cost of health care for all of us. According to a health law expert “This is so ironic. It just shows that all Americans inevitably have a need for healthcare. Somebody has paid for her healthcare costs. And she is now among the 62% whose personal bankruptcy was attributable in part to medical bills.”
And to make this a bit hypocritical, after the failure of her business she is now supported by unemployment compensation, which is opposed by the same people who want to kill health care reform. So much for personal responsibility.
