The Upper Class’s Burning Need For Socialized Medicine
July 27, 2009 5 Comments
Matthew Yglesias fell off his bicycle, and to him that illustrates the need for socialized medicine.
Apparently part of the problem he perceived from this event was that, the fall having occurred close to a weekend, he couldn’t go see anyone about his finger the next day, since doctors’ offices are closed. Well, there was an urgent care clinic he could have gone to, but according to him, his insurance wouldn’t have covered it.
Which – obviously – means Matthew Yglesias couldn’t possibly have gone there and just paid out of pocket. Impossible!
Mini bio: Matthew Yglesias is the son of Hollywood screenwriter Rafael Yglesias (Fearless, From Hell, Dark Water) and grandson of novelists Jose and Helen Yglesias. Born and raised on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, he attended prestigious prep school The Dalton School, went on to Harvard, and is now a nationally-known blogger and published author.
Unrelatedly, Matthew Yglesias couldn’t possibly afford paying for an urgent-care-clinic visit to check on a hurt finger out of his own pocket, which therefore left him with literally no medical-care options on a weekend, and this true fact proves that we need nationalized health care, for people like Matthew Yglesias.
