Well, that’s one way to do it

Apparently, a gentleman in North Carolina who was laid off from Coca-Cola three years ago became so desperate for health care that he robbed a convenience store in order to be incarcerated, where he would receive medical attention.

This should be a national embarrassment, that we are among the most successful countries in the world, but our citizens are dying on their feet because they can’t afford health care.  That’s the kind of thing I would expect to see in a third-world shithole like Haiti, not the USA.  It’s why we should be thankful of workers’ unions, not resentful of them.
