12 year old Iowa boy sells paintings to help pay for cancer treatment that tax dollars should already be paying for. Aka child labour.

Yeah, these sorts of stories always confuse and depress me. Why is this held up as good news when its caused by a shortcoming of the government? Every other developed country has implemented a social safety net including socialized medicine, but because Americans still can't distinquish between socialism and fascism, we end up with messed up "good news" stories like this!

We really need a rule against child labor stories, especially ones involving healthcare. This type of story has become a trope because of how demoralizing it is.
