Man Robs $1 From Banks To Get Prison Health Care

This is a sad demonstration of what's wrong in the US right now.

A man in North Carolina, Richard James Verone, was so desperate for medical treatment that he robbed a bank for one dollar.

Richard didn’t make a big scene as he calmly walked into the RBC Bank in Gastonia, North Carolina and handed the teller a note demanding money and informing him that he had a gun.

Said Richard:

"The note said, 'This is a bank robbery. Please only give me one dollar.' I started to walk away from the teller then I went back and said, 'I'll be sitting right over there in the chair waiting for the police.'"

While his actions seem crazy, Richard had a good reason: He needed health care. He didn’t have any insurance to cover the medical costs that he needed for a growth on his chest, ruptured discs and a problem with his left foot.

So he decided to try to get free health care in prison.

It turns out we've had universal health care all along! It was just hiding in jails!
