This quote comes from Factcheck.org:
“Obama said the high cost of health care causes a bankruptcy in America every 30 seconds. That’s at least double the true figure.”
Now, I won’t say a word against Factcheck, as far as I can tell they are the only unbiased website on the Internet. It is the content of the quote itself that worries me. Because if Factcheck is right (and they always are) then that means that the cost of healthcare bankrupts someone every minute or so!
Shit, let’s be generous: let’s say every two minutes.
/me thinks about it.
Holy crap! That’s fucking horrible! This is a catastrophe! Rome is burning! :(
