  •  Thats a pretty stupid argument.... (0+ / 0-)

    So a person can get the healthcare to continue living, but oh, the catch is, they have to file bankruptcy, have to sell everything they have worked they entire lives for and live in poverty the rest of their lives...is that really a fair choice for anyone to have to make?  

    Sure they get to continue breathing, but at what cost?  They will be digging themselves out of that medical debt for the rest of their lives.  

    •  It's not an argument and it's not stupid. (0+ / 0-)

      And you really should learn to read.

      I said nothing about fairness.
      I said nothing about goodness.

      While your're at it, you might want to educate yourself a bit. The purpose of bankruptcy is to keep you from digging yourself out of debit.  Bankruptcy clears your debts (ch 7) and/or protects you from creditors while re-packaging (and/or discharging) debts to make them more mangeable.

      Continuing to breathe is a good thing, and people -- especially lately -- go through bankruptcy all of the time.

      Here's the thing: It sucks, but everybody I know who's gone through bankruptcy has lived to tell about it.

      Can't say the same for cancer.
