Right, the responsible lower class that can't afford it will sure be running out first to get long-term disability insurance rather than feeding their kids. Sort of how they do with insurance right now.

I should think premiums would be adjusted (within restrictions), up or down, according to health and age. Again, just like car insurance being higher for young males than other segments of the population.
That's a fantastic idea. First thing that you should do if you take this position is increase the premiums of every overweight and obese person through the roof. Then you deal with the smokers the same way. Given how many of you are fat, this should be quite a financial BONANZA.

perhaps we can sort people by region as well. the South and the Midwest are much fatter than the coasts, so that seems to be a good place to start.

Yeah and then take a good look at just how much blacks are spending on hypertension related problems. Next we get the Jews with the Tay-Sachs gene.

There's so much money to be made.

not just the blacks. white men in the midwest, too.

and people with HIV should have to purchase each pill at an insane markup. that would be quite a deterrent!

Rather the point. Once you set up one of these behemoths of a program they can't, no matter how expensive or inefficient they become, be undone can they?
You'd think in this country we'd have learned our lesson with Medicare, the Dept of Education, and Social Security. Or (sorry) looking across the ocean.

If they were responsible they wouldn't have had all that sex. And they probably enjoyed it too.

and it's precisely this quality missing among so many Americans that makes me despair.

it could be that, somewhere, at least once, there was a good idea, policy, or even political leader, who wasn't an American.

they probably enjoyed getting the HIV, because they knew someone else would be picking up the tab.

Only a strange idea unless you feel individuals have zero responsibly for their own health and every expectation that someone else will financially provide for their health care.

Isn't it fair and logical that XXXL jeans cost more than small jeans? Doesn't that just make sense? Not "through the roof" different but enough to cover the extra fabric.

Shouldn't airlines be able to charge slightly more for an obese traveler? Again, only makes sense.

Ah, but jeans and airline tickets aren't a "right" whereas healthcare is. Right?

Should one charge more for education to dumb folks?

Bigger the sinner, bigger the tithe?

When you can't answer turn to the regurgitated lie: "death panels".

When will you all wake up? When you're dying?

Gee I hope not. That might lead to something really crazy like a progressive tax system or something. Naaaaaa, that would never fly.
