Even I am speechless over this. You know those terrorists captured a couple of weeks ago in NYC? It appears that at least one of them was motivated by trying to pay for a brother’s liver transplant:
“My insurance wasn’t good enough,” said Lord McWilliams, 20, who has a deadly liver disease.
His brother, David Williams, wanted money “to speed up the process,” McWilliams said. “Medicaid only goes so far.”
He dismissed as “crazy” federal accusations that Williams was a Jew-hater who wanted to wage jihad.
McWilliams said the FBI informant who lured his brother and three other hapless petty criminals into a plot to blow up synagogues and shoot down a plane promised enough money to take care of his transplant.
“[My brother] told me, ‘Don’t worry, when you go to the doctor, tell them you got money,'” McWilliams said.
McWilliams, who has already had his spleen removed, said his brother told him he would have $20,000 for the operation.
Their mother, Elizabeth McWilliams, said her older son had told her he would be able to give her a wad of cash Thursday, which was the day after the terrorist plot was to have been carried out.
Health insurance motivated violence: the mind boggles. And I always thought it would be someone really pissed off individual taking out health insurance executives….
