Liquidation based on political leanings.

Annual interest on the national debt now exceeds all government welfare programs combined. We’ll be in Iraq for years to come. Hard choices need to be made, and given the situation we’re in, I think we must bite the bullet and say no more healthcare for card-carrying Republicans. It just doesn’t make sense to invest in longevity for people who don’t believe in the future. Let them try faith-based medicine, let them pray for their arteries to be reamed and their hips to be restored, and leave science to the rest of us.

Cutting out healthcare for one-third of the population — the folks with Bush-Cheney bumper stickers, who still believe the man is doing a heckuva job — will save enough money to pay off the national debt, not a bad legacy for Republicans. As Scrooge said, let them die and reduce the surplus population. [Emphasis mine.]

The federal government already pays for my health care? Then what the hell is Kerry so exercised about?


  1. Sister dear, would you be so kind as to tell me where I can pick up my Republican card? I’ll be off the parental health insurance next year, and between the doctor visits and the pharmacy, Allegra prescriptions are a little out of my price range. And while you’re at it, direct me to a kindly Republican eye doctor who won’t charge me so much for these itchy contacts that make me want to scratch my eyes out.

  2. Nice call. All this time I have been under the illusion that I had to hold down a job to have healthcare coverage.

    To Bea: Most eye doctors are Republicans.
