Perfect Solution to Health Care Issue

While discussing the upcoming Universal Health Care Program with my friends 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 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 a Perfect Solution!!!

    How about 6 bullets, and then you can also shoot 2 of these young “whipper-snappers” that will be ruling the world and not taking care of you.

    On second thought. How about that gun now? J/K 🙂

    And with as many people that turn 70 each day, it shouldn’t take too long to be able to start over. I’d bet, it would only take 2-3 70 y/o’s to do it, and then the laws would be changed, and the committers of the crimes could be ‘forgiven” and go back home!
