Bitter, grumpy, elderly hippie Marxist douchebag Garrison Keillor… who has made millions swilling at the taxpayer trough via NPR where he hosts an unfunny show wherein liberal “sophisiticates” indulge their stereotypes of small-town rubes — thinks Republicans should be excluded from receiving health care in hopes that they will all die.
Republicans should be cut out of the health-care system entirely and simply provided with aspirin and hand sanitizer. Thirty-two percent of the population identifies with the GOP, and if we cut off health care to them, we could probably pay off the deficit in short order.
That would be the same deficit he wants to add trillions to via ObamaCare.
But as I thought about it, his plan could work. Let’s let the Republicans and conservatives have their own health care system, and liberals and Democrats will have their own. The Democrats can have the single-payer, DMV-style health care system of their dreams. They can wait two years for an angioplasty and, BTW, have their taxes doubled to pay for it.
In the Republican system, we’ll let those who need insurance purchase it on an open market and tailor their coverage to their needs. We’ll have a reasonable amount of regulation to ensure the insurance companies honor the contracts they make. And we’ll let Republicans deduct the cost of their health care from their taxes.
We’ll see which system works better.
