Bob Herbert: The Long, Dark Night

Read The Long, Dark Night for a sad story of financial disaster due to medical debt.

He reeled off a long list of charges that are coming at him like machine-gun fire, bills that he cannot afford to pay.

“So we’re selling the house,” he said. He sat quiet for a moment, then added in a soft voice, “You shouldn’t have to go live in a tent somewhere just because you don’t have insurance.”
