John Oliver buys – and forgives – $15 million in medical debt

John Oliver, host of Last Week Tonight on HBO, did something truly incredible recently. He purchased nearly $15 million in medical debt…and then forgave it all.

As wonderful as that act of generosity was, it was barely a drop in the bucket for the gigantic problem of medical debt in the USA.

Disclaimer: It only cost John Oliver $60,000 to buy this debt, but that’s still hugely generous.
