    "Hurry up and die" you "tube people" and those who "dodder around", the government can't afford to pay for you anymore! I've seen people point to Japan's HC system as an example for ours. Yet they have had to double taxes to pay for the elderly and are now hoping they hurry up and die because the old are a drain on the system. :eusa_hand:

    That guy's always sticking his foot in his mouth. He's like the Japanese Joe Biden, with less fake smiling.

    He later tried to do some damage control by claiming he was really only talking about his own end of life wishes.

    My thoughts exactly. I guess it's time for them to adopt some of the crap in Obamacare and stock up on pain pills.

    Obama intimated the same thing....they ould just give them a pill and make them comfortable instead of life prolonging treatment.
