Andy Ellis's "thought exercise" that he posted on facebook today is priceless.
Here is a thought exercise
10,000 people die each year because of lack of health careI think the solution to that problem is to balance the equation
There are a few ways to do that. The obvious and preferable way to do that is to have no body die for lack of health care.That would be fair, just and compassionate.
But their is another way.It doesn't balance by zeroing
It balances at 10 k.
It is pretty simple, for each uninsured person who dies because of lack of health care1 person would need to die because they have health care.
The right can tote their guns, but they don't need them to kill peoplethey can do that simply by being stubborn, loud, and selfish.
And really, at no cost to themselves. So it might be a good idea to have a cost to get them to stop killing 10k americans a year.
I would prefer a more humane solution, but it is worth wondering what would happen if the uninsured were as willing to kill to have what they wanted as the insured are.
No Health Care No Life
