Because institutionalising suicide attempts is such a good idea!

Especially when they follow through with their attempt, their family isn't taking care of them, and they are wishing others dead. Yes I would say they need both professional psychiatric help and 24/7 care to ensure they don't kill anyone (including themselves).

Have you ever had a government entity do anything for you? Have you worked with a government entity of any kind?

Anything in the public sector will be slow and of lower quality than what the private sector can offer. If waiting lists for inferior services are what you want then by all means, go ahead, but don't make me pay more to cover you.

Fair enough

I included her outburst to try to up her humanity factor; I think it’s in character with her general behavior/personality

50,000 is on the side though? :)

I work for a government entity and it works damn well harder and better then I've ever seen private parks run.

The only thing governmentwise I miss about Zimbabwe were the hospitals. Didn't receive any money but still ran better then American hospitals I've been to.

I honestly can't get my head around the US healthcare thing. I mean, they pay more in taxes for healthcare and get a far, far shittier system. What gives?

Anyways, good to have you on board with the revolution.

What gives is that we have 325 million people we would have to provide universal healthcare for, which in case you don’t know requires money.

For reference, European populations are usually around 80 million or less.

Russia’s is 144 million-ish.

I work for a government entity as well and I barely trust it with making sure I get paid correctly. I trust the contractors that show up to fix things even less.

Yes, but that still doesn’t mean we could afford universal healthcare for our entire population. There’s this thing called a budget, and we have larger concerns at the current time than healthcare.

How much money does she have left and how much are her medical costs? I'm still using the money for Caracasus's revolution but if someone else wants to you could give her just enough money that combined with hers she ends up with nothing.

Even with healthcare costs covered, you're looking at a lengthy period of rehabilitation, and I'm hazarding a guess that a nation with such shockingly low standards of healthcare would also lack the support needed for her to re-enter society.

The money's better spent on bribing officials, infrastructure for the dissemination of propaganda and arming the people.

Am I me me in this scenario or am I hypothetical me?

Cause hypothetical me doesn't sound like the kind of person who would give her anything.

Me me would probably come to the realisation that I'm a horrible person and try to make it up by giving the money to Ms Black Rose for her medical treatments, and dividing the money between all of the losing contestants that are not yet dead. Those that are I would give their share to their next of kin.
