Hospitals typically provide services to the poor, then sue to obtain a judgment, then write off the debt as an uncollectable judgment. Medicaid is economic need based, ie low income, no or little assets unlike Medicare which is age based or disability based and for which premiums were paid in the form of with holdings from earnings. One has to apply to receive either, but no premiums were ever paid for Medicaid assistance. Medicaid will pay for extended stays in a nursing home after one depletes their assets. Medicare provides no such benefits, The more poor who sign up for medicaid, the more the hospitals collect from the government as opposed to writing off the debt on their taxes.

you must be really old if your kids were hiding under their desks 50 years ago, I was a kid then and I'm 63 and my mother's 83.
And despite monday's huge drop, the rsx outperformed intc for the week by 8 percent, hopefully wally shorted it Monday when he was busy cackling about the drop and what a superior intellect he (in his own mind) has.
nah, the universe only hates pompous old fools such as you, must have been the oil price surge that picked on Intc eh doofus?
