And the republican response:No reform need it. The system is working perfectly. Let him die a quick death so he dont become a burden to the system.
It is ironic that this is hapenning to a family that can actually afford for insurance...this is crazy.

Wow, I am appalled by some of the comments on this topic. It seems this world is full of heartless, emotionless, and careless people, and most of them have louder mouths then their opposites.
It's fantastic to see someone so full of heart and empathy.
And being so warm and kind, you will have no issue *paying* for this child's medical bills then? If you contact the publisher of the article saying you'd like to pay for his bills, I'm sure they'd put you through to the child's parents so you can pay.
It's so fantastic there's so many people will to help out!

Let me play the devils advocate here for a moment. DISCLAIMER: What I am about to post, is NOT my personal opinion, just a hypothetical viewpoint from the insurers side of things.....
The child is deemed to be obese. Obesity is a burden and a major risk for the insurers. Just like with smokers, they don't like to insure people that are deemed a major "risk". The potential insurer(s) see a future loss on said child.
Again, not my personal opinion at all. Just voicing what the insurance company is most likely thinking. I could be wrong...but I don't think so.

State programs are enacted here for the care of expecting mothers that are in need, they are well fed through pregnancy
So the babies are healthy babies.
American babies are over three times more likely to die in their first month as children in Japan and the newborn mortality rate is 2.5 times higher in the US than in Finland, Iceland, or Norway. Only Latvia, with six deaths per 1,000 live births has a higher death rate than the U.S.
