    The woman was required to pay prior debts before being treated by a nearby PRIVATE CLINIC, not a hospital. That is a very significant difference. A hospital is, by law, not allowed to turn a pregnant patient away without serious consequences... and if Hillary knew anything about health care, she would have known that. If her campaign had bothered to research the story, it would have learned that. Her failure was two-fold:

    1. She failed to verify that the story was accurate. Even though it is "somewhat" true, it is not a valid example of our broken health care system.
    1. She demonstrated ignorance of the health care system she has supposedly been spending the past 15 years "fighting for". A little research on the web by one of her volunteers would have told her that this could not have legally happened in a public hospital.

    But this is all besides the point. These are personal diaries, most of which focus on the author's opinions or personal outlook. If you feel that your point of view isn't being represented, start writing in your own diary.
