Wal-Mart is Evil!

Just when you think Wal-Mart's PR problems are under control, it goes out and fucks them up again. This time, when one of their employees suffered brain damage in a car accident, they decided to sue her to recoup the cost of her medical bills. Isn't that insane?

I thought the whole insurance business model relied on sucking up premiums and investing them so when you do have to pay out money, it's not that big of a deal. You're not supposed to sue the person to get your money back!

This poor woman not only is brain damaged, but her 18 year old son died in Iraq recently. On top of that, her husband divorced her. He divorced her not because he doesn't love her, but so she could qualify for medicaid. Isn't that insane??

Granted, there was fine print in Wal-Mart's health insurance policy saying that "the company has the right to recoup medical expenses if an employee collects damages in a lawsuit." Even still, I think that's a whack policy. Insurance is there to protect your employees, not ass-rape them in case bad shit happens.

Once again, Wal-Mart acts like a complete jackass. When will they get their shit together and stop being insane!
