    Members of a debt relief project borne from the Occupy Wall Street campaign said Wednesday they have purchased more than $100,000 worth of medical debt in a second trial run for their efforts.

    Thomas Gokey, a spokesperson for the Rolling Jubilee campaign, said the debt was purchased for $5,000. Earlier this year, the group bought $14,000 worth of debt for $500.

    “We are buying debt that is being sold on the secondary market for pennies on the dollar,” Gokey said in a conference call. “We are doing it in exactly the same way that [debt collectors] do it, with one big difference: we are abolishing the debt as we buy it.”


    You'll never see the teabaggers doing anything for good like this :clap2:

    LOL, even $10 million would be a drop in the bucket to a multi-billion dollar industry, you stupid fuck and they are buying $100K! Nice waste of money! Medical bill payments allow a ton of options!

    If they really wanted to do some good, why not buy and abolish student loan debt?

    Liberals are so stupid they applaud a failed effort on all levels!

    Yeah... Tea Party members or Conservatives or Republicans or anyone who is not a progressive, NEVER take charitable actions, help others of their own free will, etc :rolleyes:

    Look.. commendable of this group.. and I applaud their efforts and the free choice to do this... still does not mean I believe government should do it, government should bail out, government should give freebies at another's expense, etc
