This is outrageous

Here's a guy who lost his job (and subsequently his insurance) because of Hurricane Katrina who can't get his chemotherapy.

Under the present rules for Katrina victims, if you are destitute, the government will pay your medical bills. Ditto if you are severely disabled or have children. But if you're an adult who had a job that included health benefits and you lost that job because of the storm, the government can't seem to help.
Hello? You have to start destitute before we can help you??
