Throw the book at him! No seriously, it's sad when an old timer does something that stupid for some sub-standard American health care. What a sick sad world!

All in all, I agree with his decision. That this kind of thing happens is just embarrassing. This isn't the first time something like this has happened, either.

Pravda is not a reliable source of information.
If you'll recall, it is formerly the biggest media outlet of the USSR, which retreated to the internets following the collapse.

The saddest thing about this article is that our inmates are treated better than our law abiding citizens. Our country is in worse shape than I originally thought.

Didn't the great Obama bring health care of European standards to the USA? What went wrong?

This is nothing new. For many inmates, their free health care when they're inside is the first access to doctors that they've ever had, while on the outside, law abiding citizens can't afford healthcare.

It's a travesty.
