It may have just been a coincidence for this to happen on the night Republicans failed to repeal Obamacare in the Senate, but it sure seems ominous for it to have happened on the very same night:
NEW YORK POST – Manhattan parents struggling to pay their doctor’s bills jumped to their deaths early Friday – leaving double suicide notes pleading that their two kids be cared for, a law enforcement source told The Post.
The bodies of the man, 53, and woman, 50, — who claimed they had a “wonderful life” — were found in the middle of the street on 33rd Street between Park and Madison avenues in Murray Hill after the pair jumped from the 9th floor window of a 17-story corner office building on Madison Avenue at about 5:45 a.m., police said.
The woman had a suicide note in her pocket that read, “in sum and substance, ‘Our kids are upstairs, please take care of
them,’” the source said.
The man had a typed note in his pocket that began with “WE HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE.”
“Patricia and I had everything in life,” the note read as it touched on the couple’s “financial spiral” and how “we can not live with” the “financial reality.”
The source added that a line of the note contained words to the effect: “’We both have medical issues, we just can’t afford the health care.’”
The victims’ identities were not immediately released.
I obviously don’t know anything about these people, but I’m sure many people are frustrated with the high cost of Obamacare. I don’t know any this frustrated however, that they’d just leave their kids to grow up with strangers over health care costs.
In any event, take this ominous coincidence for what you will.
