For the last 15 years we’ve been lead to believe that Medical Bankruptcies were so common you were only ONE SNEEZE away from declaring it yourself! Sadly, like a lot of “studies” today, it was all a fraud. (See the Eisenhower farewell address as to the reasons why this is.)
Yet, here we are, in the beginning of the political season discussing what to do with all these people going bankrupt because of medical expenses. Look folks, I get it. you don’t want to be involved in politics. Politics is hollywood for ugly people, they used to say. But guess what, politics is involved in EVERYTHING you do.
So, probably best to recognize that and then try to minimize the damage to your psyche by investigating the various proclamations the politicians and media scream at you. Once you realize a lot of this is simply fraudulent, you can actually relax.
