    Man, I sure can't wait for government controlled healthcare. :rolleyes:

    That woman was dumb. She should have gone into the ER and said "non hablo englese", and she would have been taken care of for free. Well, free for her, and at a cost to everyone else.

    Unless I missed it, the article didn't give enough information. If the dad got divorced and dropped his health insurance to "self" and not "family" then I wouldn't expect the insurance to cover the kids.

    It all depends on the divorce agreement, most times, it is ordered who covers the children with insurance. YOu have to love this women, complaining ABOUT THE FREE HEALTH CARE THE PEOPLE OF THE US JUST GAVE HER!!!

    I could give a rat's ass, here's a hint lady, get a job!!!!! This story is so over blown it is not even funny. First off, no orthopedic is going to set a broken bone for at least two days after the initial injury. They always wait for the swelling to go down, before they can set the bones. She went to an ER, got the same exact treatment, as the rest of us who actually take care of their own families, would have gotten. The only problem is that she had to travel to see an Orthopedic doctor (ohh boo, hoo). Anyone else here, would rather not have to pay those pesky health insurance premiums (and co-pays), and the only hardship that you would have to endure is a 50 mile trip to see a specialist!

    BOO HOOO, get a job!

    Now take a look to WHERE THIS WOMEN LIVES!!

    She lives in Bradford, PA, which is in the middle of nowhere, halfway between Buffalo and State Collegel, PA, she probably has to drive 50 miles to get to a movie theater!!!

    Real World, you beat me to it, she should have told them she was an Illegal Alien and they just snuck into America, and to get even quicker service the mother should have told them the kids father was a Muslim and that she wanted to wash her feet and then say a prayer, they not only would have fixed the kids leg they would have given her a free scholarship to Harvard and a new car.

    typical reply....

    Instead of finger pointing to the moon, why not offer REAL suggestions on how to fix this problem.....???????


    There is a REAL solution to our medical system. Its streamlining and regulating.
    Streamline administrative costs, and regulate prices for drugs and equipment. That way each hospital would make $$$ depending on the quality of service they provide. All hospitals, and insurers stay private.
    The only people who will get p'd off is the drug companies who seem to be concentrating on curing Restless Leg Syndrome, and other fantastic ailments.....


    we can do this......if you people think forward, and quit with the bull$h!zz finger pointing.
