Thank you USA for making universal health care all around the world possible

Today, health care related products and services markets are global. So thank you USA for having so ridiculously high costs of health care because this allows all other countries to negotiate lower costs for their universal health care, while corporations still having enough income to research and develop new cures and equipment. Without you, USA, we would all have to pay higher prices, all around the world. Thank you for deciding to carry this burden yourself.

UC Berkeley students lose their health care coverage if they participate in riots

From UC Berkeley health care plan:

This Plan does not cover nor provide benefits for:

Expense incurred as a result of injury due to participation in a riot. “Participation in a riot” means taking part in a riot in any way; including inciting the riot or conspiring to incite it. It does not include actions taken in self-defense; so long as they are not taken against persons who are trying to restore law and order.

How can participation in legal or legitimate demonstrations (which is an expression of free speech) which turn violent suppress your health insurance? One more nail in the apathy coffin.
