County in rural Kansas is jailing people over unpaid medical debt
Tres Biggs was working two jobs but they fell behind on their medical bills, then the unthinkable happened.

"You wouldn't think you'd go to jail over medical bills," Tres Biggs said.

"I was scared to death," Tres Biggs said. "I'm a country kid — I had to strip down, get hosed and put a jumpsuit on."

Bail was $500. He said they had "maybe $50 to $100" at the time.

“They pretty much told me I'd be paralyzed for the rest of my life," Nathan said.

Nathan was rushed into surgery, and Ashley got to work — this was going to be a long and expensive recovery. They called their insurance company, and the situation went from bad to worse.

Towns and Counties and States and governments of all sorts and sizes do have the legal right to the bread you have earned. The laws and ordinances they make give them the right. Otherwise, who would pay for them to make and enforce the laws and ordinances which give them the right to the bread you have earned?
