Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


The bankruptcy bill, currently under consideration by the Senate, deserves to die.

The Boston Globe has an editorial mentioning a recent study by researchers from Harvard Medical School and Harvard Law School which shows that between 46.2% and 54.5% of all bankruptcy filings are due to serious medical problems. As the article points out, the medical condition often forces that person to stop working. In other cases, it's the cost of the care that has bankrupted families.

Where is the effort by this president and Congress to address health care costs and access to care? Nowhere to be found. It's telling that this is one of the top priorities out of the gate for the Republican controlled Senate in the 109th Congress.
