    I, too, lost my job and insurance about 1.5 years ago. Ironically, the company went bankrupt. Then I had a seizure and was rushed, unconscious, to the hospital and obviously had no say in my treatment. After five days in the hospital (when I woke up they asked me who the president was and all I could think was, "Please, don't let it be Reagan") I'd racked up a $36,000 bill, not including individual docs, none of whom I could remember seeing. The hospital wrote me off since I was just poor enough. But the individual docs still want their money, one to the tune of more than $4,000. Who was that guy, anyway? In the Republican scheme of things, maybe they should have completely written me off so I could decrease the surplus population.
