|The Perfect Solution to Senior Health Care
||[Aug. 4th, 2009|11:40 am]
This has been going around the email loop and makes for a great blog post.
While discussing the upcoming Universal Health Care Program with my friend the other day, I think we found the solution. I'm sure you've heard the ideas 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. 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 buy a baseball bat and beat 2 senators and 2 representatives senseless. OF COURSE, YOU WILL BE SENT TO PRISON where you'll 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? Well bring it on. And who will be paying for all of this. The same government that just told you that you're too old for health care.
And, since you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any income tax. Isn't that wonderful?
And if we all do our part we can end up in the same prison and have one hell of a social life!
I really think we've found a Perfect Solution!
