Why didn’t she just buy it? This doesn’t make sense! The medication to save her son’s life was in a box a few feet in front of a wooden counter.
A careful reading of this story indicates this mother and her child are being supported by the state, that is, welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, etc. She expects the state to provide for them and If the state doesn’t provide for them, they die. That is what socialism is all about. Now the woman is going to sue the state. I predict a lot more of this in our future as we are all herded into socialized medicine and other inefficient collective arrangements.
IIRC, the medicine is $130 bucks per tube. That can be a lot of money to low income family.
Still, relying on the government/taxpayer for picking up the tab when a life is on the line is just .....
At Walgreens, pro’ly about $275
She obviously couldn’t afford it. People with money have this unreasonable belief that everyone has a reserve they can tap into. A lot don’t.
Just adding the Advair to this kids drug regime doesn't sound like it was the answer. Besides it appears he did get back on it for a couple weeks or so.
He was a lot sicker than that.......Mom should have known.
