Comment: No! Ain't worth it to buy free health insurance for the dead...

No! Ain't worth it to buy free health insurance for the dead...

We must show respect for the dead, lest they out vote us. I have a plan. The Mark Twain plan!

At $20,000 for free health care, I was mistaken. I thought our federal government calculated how much per taxpayer to provide free health care for everybody. I thought it only covered the living.

Now you mention the dead! Including the dead in health care services will raise the price on those still living. Yet, you cite Massachusetts is discounting health care down to the bones @ $12,000. Even for the dead last! ... Meaning freshest?! [A puzzlement]

Well, it is all together confusing to me. Let me present my plan to make things seem fair... Not fair. Seem fair. How about we bury the dead deeper than Twain deep... One fathom burial depth seemed respectful centuries gone by. Times have changed. Now us living are told we are getting free health care for only $20,000. What about the scandalous Mass rate slasher?! Massachusetts offers a low balling rate slasher free health care at a mere $12,000. I thought it was the same service... Now, hear tell they are including the dead. I ain't standing for it!

Might we legislate the dead must be buried respectfully at Mark Twain (two fathoms)? The US government might edge Massachusetts out of the free health care market.

In conclusion, the United States of America must regulate... control those wildcatters. In the 'Land of the Free' ... things ought to be just so.
