    The cost of the cars was north of 8m. The cost of the debt you purchased
    was nowhere near 15m. Probably closer to 1 or 2. But hey, try explaining
    the nature of debt to some retarded liberal college student audience. Let’s
    just clap. Feel the bern, amirite guise? XDXDXD

    You’re all faggots.

    I’m just wondering how a breathing treatment could cost anywhere near 80
    thousand. I’d ask for a detailed list of all charges

    The insurance companies pay their politicians to make sure the country
    remains the most inefficient healthcare provider in the world, even if it
    makes millions of people suffer and depresses the entire economy. And the
    American voter wholeheartedly approves of this disaster by voting for the
    politicians vetted by these companies. How many millions did your favorite
    candidate receive from the pharmaceutical industry and the health insurance

    Uhm, couldn’t just anyone in debt start a collector company, buy their own
    debt for half a cent on the dollar and then “forgive” it, or get a friend
    to do that?

    because reasons: ‘merica

  13. rage against bs says:

    If other wealthy Americans, late shows or even the government sees the end
    of this segment as a sort of a dare or even as a bit of bullying from John
    Oliver, it could mean at least a few weeks of debt-free life for many poor
    Americans. Let’s hope for the best. Praise be mega-reverand..

  14. Pedro Paiva says:

    At least we have the SNS that has a lot of Waiting list and we paid the
    same as 10$ for the doctor consult but the operations and treatments are
    then free…

  19. Michiel Van Kets says:

    so, everybody is bad, except for those people that took somebody else’s
    money without the intent to pay it back; they’re all innocent victims …
    what a bunch of bullshit
