Just curious as to what people here will say about this. Do you think the government should pass legislation to prevent the following example below from happening, and if so what, and if not why not? I know someone, who's in his mid/late 30s, immigrated here (legally), has held the same job steadily, recently became a US citizen, married a US citizen here, and just had a baby. He's a prime example of somebody coming here for a better life-and an example of the American dream. Did everything the right way. He's a hard worker, and has health insurance for his family through his employer. His newborn baby however has many medical problems-and needs very expensive medical attention, or will die. The health insurance company has already alerted the company he works for that he's no longer able to stay on the policy. I think there's something very wrong with this scenario-and it can happen to ANYBODY. I think America can do better for our citizens than this. edit: to be fair they're not dropping him, but just charging a ridiculous amount, knowing full well he, and the other employees cannot afford it. Adding edit here, rather than my post.
