    It's always the most vulnerable the system goes after. You don't have enough money to pay a medical bill, well then have another from the county.

    People in the story are NOT being jailed for not paying debts. They are being jailed for contempt of court.

    Maybe if you open you eyes while reading you'd find better understanding. It's worth a try.
    OK, may I ask if their contempt of court stems from the fact that they have not paid certain medical bills? Or is that too much dot-connecting and cause and effect?

    Equality and equal protection of the law for unemployment compensation in our at-will employment States. We should have no homeless in our First World economy; we have a Statue of Liberty. The Richest should be ashamed of themselves until we help the Poor overcome that inequality under Capitalism. Employment is at the will of either party for any benefits administered by any State agency.

    Capitalism requires capital to work. Only Capital must circulate under capitalism.

    The right wing only complains when it is the Poor who are "sleeping under a bridge".

    Class warfare deserves class action.
