I agree. The fact that she was an illegal alien does not make her any less a valuable person in anyone's eyes. It's the irony that gets me. I could fall over dead in the hospital having camped out there for need of a new heart and I wouldn't be given a second glance when I keeled over because I couldn't pay for it. When do I become as important as she apparently was to have a special charity cause in my own name. I venture to say there's a half dozen pople just like her in my county alone that will die because of lack of funds. Dang right the hospital should be held highly accountable and made to pay. But then we have to pay higher doctor/hospital bills, to compensate for the higher malpractice rates. It's a vicious circle. I don't think there is a fix, quick or otherwise. It's gone beyond fixing and now we're looking at natural elimination 'finance style'. Depends on where you are on the food/money chain as to whether or not you live.
