The Compassion of Dr. Ron Paul in Off Topic
A Ron paul 2008 campaign manager died from an easily treatable disease because the good doctor didn't see fit to provide insurance. How goddamn fucking compassionate.
1) Kent Snyder elected not to purchase health insurance. As most campaigns are inconsistently funded and are seasonal, all staff generally are paid on a contractor basis.
2) Snyder received ample treatment. The hospital billed his family $400,000 for the care.
3) Insurance in this case would not have affected the outcome of Snyder's survival, only the debt burden on his family.
