Exceptionalism 



Sometimes I find if very hard to understand Americans.
Why wouldn't they take this man's death seriously? Do they really believe that "you can just go to the emergency room" to get healthcare?

I hear a lot of chat about American exceptionalism -- well, I certainly hope so. I hope this callous attitude is not the norm among civilized nations.
They should be ashamed of themselves.
