Usury in America:
Lifetime enslavement to debt
This Idaho patient, who is among the working poor and earns too little to make a higher payment or to pay her medical bill in one lump sum, and too much to qualify for Federal or state assistance, is making a $50.00 monthly payment on the $2,500 she owes. The physician's monthly interest charge on the debt is $50.30. At this rate, she will never be free of this debt and will be indebted for life.
Here’s the documentation, from an invoice sent this month of January (2016):

The churches are silent on this crime of theft via interest, and mostly silent concerning the Money Power which rules our nation as a direct result of the enormous profits reaped from this weapon of parasitic usury against the working poor.
