    how much the government pays each month in medical and living expenses (monthly checks, food stamps, help with housing, etc...) for those who've been left to deteriorate to disability?  

    Some would like to work and could support themselves better if only medical wasn't an issue.  Some wouldn't have become disabled if treated in the first place.

    I'm sorry, wiseacre, you had to go through the pain and am grateful it didn't progress to something worse (punctured lung).
