Perfect Solution to Senior Health Care
While discussing the upcoming Universal Health Care Program with my sister-in-law the other day, I think we have found the solution.
I am sure you have heard the idea that if you're a senior you need to suck it up and give up the idea that you need any health care. A new hip? Unheard of. We simply can't afford to take care of you anymore. You don't need any medications for your high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, etc. -- the same old dodge keeps coming back: "Let's take care of the young people. After all, they will be ruling the world very soon."
So here is the solution: When you turn 70, you get a gun and 4 bullets. In return for shooting 2 Senators and 2 Representatives, you get free health care for life!
How does it work?
Of course, you will be sent to prison. There you will get 3 meals a day, a roof over your head, and all the health care you need! New teeth? Great! Need glasses? No problem. New hip, knee, kidney, lung, heart? Bring it on. And who will be paying for all of this? The same government that just told you that you are too old for health care. And, since you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any income tax, either.
I really think we have a Perfect Solution!
