    and get treated at a hospital.  The hospital comes after you for that money for years.  Your credit rating is shot, so everything else costs loans, mortgages, credit cards.  It shows up when you apply for a job, and that kind of thing keeps you at the bottom, trying to reach up and just not being able to.

    It's not about the government or the hospital picking up the tab....that eventually happens when the hospital writes off the cost of that care, but the person's financial life gets ruined forever because of that care.
