    I donated money today and I am ashamed.+*by hillbrook greenFollow

    I donated money today to a fellow Kossack who was talking about suicide because he couldn't afford an $81 prescription.

    No congratulations, please, because I am actually ashamed of myself.

    I'm ashamed because of all the times I've spent $81 on meaningless crap.

    I'm ashamed for all the times I could have donated $81 to some worthy cause and instead spent it on something else that I was just certain that I needed.

    I'm ashamed of all the times I've eaten at fancy restaurants and paid $81 for food that I could have bought for a few dollars and then donated the rest of the money to someone who really needs it.

    But most of all, I am ashamed that I live in a country where a person can have an infected tooth that he can't afford to fix and be so disillusioned and devoid of hope that the only solution he can think of is ending his own life.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    Health Care is a right. It is the underpinning of Life, liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. Health Care for all should not come at the price of increasing anybody's wealth
