Isabella No growth sits in the hallway of a county hospital. She has been in the hallway for three days with no treatment or diagnosis. It is clear she is dying. She is on oxygen tubes, floating. Isabella has no money to pay for services as she is from a mining family. Instead of rehabilitating coal miners, the government is fighting hard so they can keep their jobs which are killing the workers, the land and the air. Isabella has pneumosistic pneumonia and will probably die in the public hospital whose funding was drastically reduced by the government. As a result a rich person can buy an antique race car for a couple million.
