Among whites, blacks, illegals, Indians........some are held to a standard and some are not. Which ones are? Of course the guy should pay his medical bills, but so should everybody else. Only some are held to a standard, others given a pass. Al Sharpton owed millions in taxes. Why was he allowed to get away with it? What if that were Sarah Palin?

Gary, Was it a hospital or a nursing/extended stay facility?

Nursing homes are very good at taking property to pay for medical bills. And that's usually done after the patient/resident dies.

About the only thing I've heard of hospitals doing is sending it to collections and collections taking them "nonpayer" to court and the court making them sell the house for payment.

Something just doesn't sit right with the story. I'm not saying it's fake. I'm saying there's some vital info missing.

I don't know about taking your house but Hospitals are garnishing wages and charging interest, up to 9%. People should get ahead of this and start paying right away, if you don't make enough, get another job.

I watched a guy do just that once. then he stood in drive way with shot gun when fire dept showed up. Told them they would not trespass. Been years ago though!

Burnt it because he caught his wife cheating on him. Left her here with a pile of ashes and disappeared back to Tennessee or Kentucky? Can't remember which.

Right, especially if you're dying from cancer. Brilliant!

When the decision makers of a household get sick and down and out they dont always make the best decisions.

Another thought is how could being in ER for 3hrs., take chest x ray, blood work,ekg, and pee in cup cost almost $6,000 No medicine of any kind given. Just all test by machines that may or may be paid for? How about a helicopter ride for 30 miles, $25,000
Where have you ever done buisness with out some idea of knowing what the cost was before going in. Take your car in to get oil change and the guy decides to do a complete overhaul for $5000, you get the bill, now pay it. Sounds high but just think if you had trouble in the slums some night you could get robbed and you might die.
Its just the nature of the beast a DR has to run evey kind of test in case he ends up in court, so he can prove he is in the right. Their liability insurance is enormus, afraid even to guess. By the way, did you know if you spill a hot cup of coffee in your lap , it might burn and somebody has to pay.

Yes they must make profits but why drag the taxpayer in it with property taxes on buildings that never seem to get paid for?

This is just a thought but just wonder if any of those private patents on expensive meds was ever financed in any way with tax dollars in the way of subsidizing research? I know of no proof but I suspect the worst!

i think this country is in serious trouble and honestly believe its too late to turn back.as much as we try to find some one else to blame,we all have a hand in it.wish i had a easy way to fix it but in my opinion it will take bloodshed to fix.that is if a higher power doesn't get fed up and do it for us.

Yup, the majority already has us beat, if it weren't for the electoral college it'd be over.......and now they're trying to out that.
A friend of mine here said "I don't care what they do as long as they just leave me alone and let me do my thing."
Yep, that's exactly what they want you to do. Don't pay no attention to what they're doing in D.C. and just do your thing. But, when he wakes up, he's not gonna be able to just Do His Thing anymore.
Too many exceptions for too many groups, while just one group is required to toe the line and be responsible.
There. Problem solved.

a person with 2 good incomes that owns 3 houses with zero debt should not be nervous,i'm scared.

This would be really good advise if you want to get free food, free roof over your head, free tv, a couple hours exercise every day, only see your wife on visitors day.

Shoot, Nebraska's prisons are at 160% capacity. They're not prisons, they're country clubs. For a piece of **** that only wants to do nothing it's a perfect life!
PCR, I'm about to sell my properties and run, as the taxes keep going up and up. Doubled this last go-round. At some point, it's going to become unaffordable to own property.
I have a family member who bought a section of land in '05 for 450k, now it's assessed at 1.5 mil. At this rate how long can a person afford to own land?

Go west young man, go west! Can't imagine how many trappers are out in the 4-states corner chasing those $1000 cats. I'm betting they're running into one another.
