^Ah, the good ol’days.
Kyle Willis, a 24-year-old unemployed father of one from Cincinnati, passed away last week from an easily treatable tooth infection because he didn’t have health insurance and couldn’t afford a simple tooth extraction.
With thanks for the sad, tragic, horrible tip to Reddit:
“A 24-year-old father dies of a tooth ache…because he didn’t have insurance. The uninsured in America are 40% more likely to die compared with their insured counterparts.”
