A huge wildfire has burned for weeks in Colorado. Joan McCarter of Daily Kos reports this depressing news: Many of the firefighters do not have health coverage as part of their compensation. They are federal employees, but on a contract basis. McCarter also points out that the firefighters make so little that they cannot afford to purchase insurance. Something is very rotten in . . . the greatest country in the world.
