    Yeah, I know.... God I just wish all people could make a living for themselves. Would make everyone else's lives so much easier.

    Yeah, but it won't happen until there's no more "free" money left.

No private charity or group is willing to pay the bill either. The hospital is going to end treatment in 24 hr unless the government steps in

    What should happen accoring to you

    The government is going to have to pay if the baby is going to live
    what's your point?

    Yeah, but the intent of those programs is to help people get back on their feet... they weren't intended to allow people to survive off of them. Sometimes I wish that those programs would simply end... Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, welfare, etc... but who knows what would happen then? What a mess.

    I think the child should be taken care of by the hospital. However, a reality check would suggest that those cost will be passed on in increase costs to future patients and insurance companies.
