While discussing the upcoming Universal Health Care Program with my friend the other day, I think we have found the solution. I am sure you have 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 get a gun and 4 bullets. You are allowed to shoot 2 senators and 2 other representatives. Of course, you will be sent to prison where 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? Well 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.
I really think we have found a Perfect Solution!
This is only a joke! Shooting someone is NOT meant to be a solution to the healthcare problems we are facing in this country. The only way to really change this is to band together and let our politicians know how we feel! The power of the vote is a strong incentive for them to do what we are asking. Let them know in no uncertain terms that we need solutions and we need choices! And we don’t need more taxes to pay for it! If they don’t create this solution we need to let them know that we are prepared to remove them from office and find someone who will do the job. It’s time for Americans to stand up and let our voices be heard… that we will not stand for public servants that are only interested in their own selfish projects. They are there to serve us!
