    until newspaper intervenes

    Being poor and without funds for medical care in Sacramento may be a familiar health trend. The big, bad bank won't evict the couple with the foreclosed home after all--until after a 55-year old unemployed public school roofer husband's quadriplegic and terminally-ill 59-year old wife, a former hospital nursing assistant, dies. Temporary rescue came because the media made the story public.

    A Fair Oaks, Sacramento county couple are caught in a medical and financial crisis. See the December 18, 2011 Sacramento Bee article by Anita Creamer, "Terminally ill woman to stay in foreclosed home until she dies." The wife suffers from the last stages of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS.

    A "modest" Fair Oaks house? That's a hoot.
    Quarter of a million dollar refi- and you're telling me the bitches got no assets?

    What's your point?

    It kinda seems like the bank is being framed as the bad guy there, but to me it's the government that's fucked up. Or I guess more specifically, voters who allow the US to proceed without a universal healthcare system analogous to that found in other developed nations. Also in Australia we have a government housing trust for this kind of thing to give people with low incomes or disabilities houses at a subsidised rent. Does anything like that exist in the US?

    There's been an update with good news--

    Bank Manager killed while refusing to foreclose on dying quadriplegic

    Sometimes good intentions aren't enough. A Fair Oaks, Sacramento county bank manager had told examiners that his bank would defy laws requiring foreclosure on a couple are caught in a medical and financial crisis. See the December 18, 2011 Sacramento Bee article by Anita Creamer, "Terminally ill woman to stay in foreclosed home until she dies." The wife suffers from the last stages of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. Tresury agents attempted to arrest the manager and in the scuffle--

    Am I supposed to be outraged because the bank, once they understood the circumstances, decided not to foreclose and allow the couple to live in the house?

    But, if we followed other countries we might have the income of other countries, or, instead of having 80% of all recent medical patents we might have only 20% or less and thus not be able to create medical care for virtually the entire world. Make sense?
