The Karlo proposal for healthcare
As the nation engages in its meticulous and rational debate of the issues, it's interesting to note that 62% of Republicans believe that the government should stay out of Medicare. Since Republicans tend to be the bacon-chompin' ignorami with the big guts, I suggest an alternative solution to the Obama plan. Why don't we just divide the nation into two halves, between Republicans and everyone else and have an insurance company calculate the rates for both halfs based on health risks? My guess is that the Republicans would pay double. We can then have all these Democrat-leaning states (like California) stop paying more to the Federal government than they get (in effect, subsidizing the red states). Finally, we can have the government get out of . . . Republican Medicare.
