hello-the-future:

Look, I’m not panicking about Ebola, but if I see one more tweet or article re: “an Ebola outbreak can’t happen in America because it’s more of a poor country thing and we have hospitals and resources…”

A lot of Americans don’t have sick days, fever and diarrhea means “take some pills and power through it,” and a lot of us are afraid of going to the hospital because we don’t want to go bankrupt.

We are a country of people who, when we see the ambulance, don’t go “thank goodness, the ambulance is here;” instead, we start screaming “I refuse treatment!” because we can’t afford the ambulance ride.

Our hospitals and resources may be great, but—to borrow the phrase—they’re not evenly distributed.
