Nah, this system ain't broken!

Disgrace is the only word I can think of to describe the situation of Arielle Moye of Colombia SC. She had a heart transplant at the age of seven but now that she has turned nineteen she no longer qualifies for Medicaid and therefore has no means to afford the 3200 USD per month she needs just to pay for the anti-rejection drugs.

Should she die because of this one would think that the omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent invisible hand of the market will have some serious explaining to do.
