This oped exposed the gaping hole where the heart should be. John MacKey believes that if someone isn't healthy, it's their fault and because of that he doesn't feel any obligation to help. Perhaps he should spend some time living in the shoes of these people before simply assuming that somehow he earned his good fortune and if only those people were more like him they too would have his life. Or perhaps he should read the story of Job again. Because sometimes bad things happen to people without them doing a thing to deserve it. And decent human beings care about the misfortune of others and try to help.
