Funny Text-to-Movie: Privatized Firefighter

6 posts / 0 new

This is a satirical text-to-movie showing how a fire emergency would look if we applied the private healthcare model to fire departments.

Maybe when it comes to getting help in emergencies, we shouldn't let profit incentive lead the discussion.

Emergencies are very frequently covered free of charge by hospitals to those who have no insturance or means of payment.

True, if you call stabilization coverage. If you walk into a hospital and say you have cancer but can't afford treatment, they'll kick you to the curb.

P.S.

Should hospitals have to foot the bill?

Well, they do anyway in many cases.

If a hostpital CHOOSES to provide a service to someone free-of-charge, then yes, they are making a decision to "foot the bill".

If I offer to do something as a favor to someone, should I go out and try to find someone else to pay for it?

What happens when the news media stops covering news objectively - and instead becomes a source of very specific opinions that serve a very narrow agenda?

For example - in the case of the democratic primary - consider the news coverage of the mere possibility of Vice President Joe Biden challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party's nomination for president.
