Twice a victim

How many victims of the Boston Marathon bombs are going to end up in bankruptcy because they do not have health insurance? Not many ordinary people have hundreds of thousands of dollars to pay what their care will cost, plus the physical therapy, prosthetic limbs and other costs.

Some of the victims are breadwinners who may never go back to work. Others may be the caregivers for the family that once again cannot care for its children, some of whom will need care the rest of their lives.

The insurance companies, pharmaceutical firms and members of Congress say Obamacare will bankrupt the country. These victims will face their own bankruptcy, thanks to the country's inaction.
