In the words of our former Dear Leader, let me be clear.
I was long in the tank for Beto long before it was cool to be in the tank for Beto.
BUT I've got a bone to pick with Beto.
It is about this whole healthcare thing.
He thinks healthcare should be a right.
Now, there are those who get the shit lottery.
By "shit lottery" I mean cancer, preexisting conditions, rare diseases, and so forth, and by God, we should empty the treasury for those folks. Call it communism, I don't give a shit. I'm for it.
But then there are these folks:
Who wants to underwrite the health insurance policy for that guy?
An obese smoker who consumes alcohol.
Why is it our responsibility to provide healthcare for someone who does not give a shit about his?
To be fair, I too was a bit of a pudgy guy. I was hovering around 230 pounds, but I have slimmed down to 190. Why? Cos' being fat sucks. Forget image, it leads to poor health outcomes, and while Blue Cross Blue Shield is great company, I have no interest in wanting to find out how great it is.
So for every tragedy we hear about, there are many folks, like that guy above, who are too lazy to give a rat's fuck about themselves.
So if Beto can explain why we should care about the health of those who don't care for themselves, I am all ears.
