  •  Here's something Congress could do (4+ / 0-)

    Pass a law that pays for all medical bills related to their injuries for anyone directly physically injured in a mass murder situation or terrorist attack of any kind.

    It would cost almost nothing (since they don't happen often) but it would be a huge help for anybody injured in any attack of this kind.

    •  Too true. I have UK friends shaking their heads (2+ / 0-)

      at the very idea that someone like Jeff Bauman would have to not only deal with his profound injuries, but actually have to pay in full for the privilege.

      Only in America, eh?

      I'm a sanctimonious purist. Whatchya gonna do about it?

        Sounds reasonable to expect this is something that should not be born entirely by the victim or his friends. The rest of the world is worlds ahead of USA in that respect.

        old, tired, poor, unemployed, ill, divorced, sick of politicians screwing us over, it only gets worse, think Charles Dickens novel.
