And fortunately for Senator McCain, he and his family won't find themselves drowning in a sea of debt over many tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills that they have not the means to pay. The McCains will not lose every penny of their life's savings or have to mortgage their house to pay for the Senator's medical bills. Their credit won't be ruined and they won't have collection agencies hounding them and calling them and their relatives late at night. Their lives won't be crippled by stress and fear, they won't be agonizing over what will they do, how will they get by? They won't have to set up a GoFundMe.
Senator McCain will recover, God willing, and his life will go on as before. Should he need follow-up or subsequent medical treatment, he won't have to do without it, he won't have to jeopardize his health or his life because he can't afford the health care he needs.
One wonders if during his convalescence Senator McCain will ponder how fortunate he is to be among the Americans who receive excellent health care because they have good, substantial health insurance. Will he wonder how it would be for him and his family if they were among the 23 million who'll lose their insurance should the health care plan awaiting his vote pass in the Senate? Will he wonder what would have happened to him if all he could afford were one of the cheap junk bare-bones insurance policies that insurance companies will be allowed to foist on the poor or the unsuspecting if his vote facilitates the passage of his party's health care bill?
Will he thank God for the gift of his life and health and promise in return for his recovery to use his position to advocate for making the excellent health care that he was blessed to received available and affordable to all Americans? Will he refuse to vote for a bill that would put millions of Americans in a situation that neither he nor his fellow Senators would ever want to be in themselves?
