  •  I'm glad they're going after medical debt; (3+ / 0-)

    it's the debt that is levied with the most cruelty and viciousness, and with the least choice.  

    i.e., people might choose to buy houses or go to school... valid choices, but still choices.  No one chooses to get sick or hurt, and people with medical debt are often least able to get out from under it.  

    Not just because they may still be sick and unable to work as the bills pile up.  But also because it's easy to rack up a house's worth of debt in days or weeks of treatment or hospitalization, and they don't schedule out the payments over 30 years.
