  1. A pair of senator dino melayes shoe can foot the bill.those are.people whom we elected to serve us

  2. Very good comment, Danti. If patients are not paying their bills how could the hospitals pay their workers. Maybe this maybe is one of the government workers who are owed months of salary while the governors and politicians are busy paying themselves.
