    so a guy is unloading fire wood at my friend's house and is rubbing his eye. i ask about the eye and it turns out that his kid poked him a few weeks ago and scratched the cornea. so the doctor gave him some drops and a $400.00 bill which he can't afford to pay and now the eye has flared up again. i tell him to go back to the doctor but he says he can't as he can't pay the last bill and he will just use the drops some more and see if that works. i point out that losing vision in the eye would be a terrible thing...go get treatment and just don't pay....but he has that pride we are taught to have that is often a curse and so if he is unlucky he will live out his life blind in one eye or with impaired vision...THIS IS THE SHIT WE NEED TO ADDRESS NOT SOME CRAP ABOUT WHO DOES OR DOESN'T HAVE TO FILL A PRESCRIPTION FOR CONTRACEPTIVES!!! THIS IS THE STUFF I WORKED FOR OBAMA FOR....TO GET HEALTH CARE FOR EVERYONE IN THIS COUNTRY AND BOY AM I GOING TO BE PISSED IF IT DOESN'T HAPPEN.
