beethoven said:Caleb Medley, Uninsured Aurora Shooting Victim, May Face $2 Million In Medical Costs (VIDEO)
the fact that so many of you americans face this kind of thing every single day is backwards, ridiculous and completely idiotic. you really need to let go of your narrow-minded, us-and-them, politically motivated ideologies and support a system that supports you all
I read the tragedy this young man faces..
The family of Caleb Medley has been told that his medical bills could cost up to $2 million if he fully recovers, CBS News reports (h/t ThinkProgress). Medley, who lacks health insurance, is currently in an induced coma after he was shot in the eye during Friday's Colorado tragedy. His wife, Katie, gave birth to their son in the same hospital Tuesday.
but one thing isn't clear, why if he was working for a company that offers health care he didn't have coverage?

and more importantly,.. if this need is critical.. then why wait over three years to implement it?
why has Obama done nothing to actually solve this today.. or last year.. or for the last three and a 1/2 years for that matter?
the Obama plan would not have given this man coverage, but fined him for declining offered coverage..
so if making a tragedy about politics is all a liberal wants to do then they should accept the cold hard facts and not try to blame this on others and call US narrow-minded and backwards..
what is backwards and narrow-minded and extremely selfish is how the democrats and liberal president crafted this flawed law to actually make it harder for people and businesses to offer coverage, while putting off covering them for years so they can get re-elected..
remember this liberals.. the selfish Obama plan would not have given this man coverage, but fined him for declining offered coverage..
with that said,.. I would encourage all to give to assist this young man and his family at. http://calebmedley.com/help
