Can't imagine why

So apparently the sterling, seminal argument being pushed by right-wingers, including preeminent "Christian" toolbag Tony Perkins, is that government-run health care will lead to a grimy dystopia where the elderly are euthanized to save money, which is borne out by the horror stories of gulag hospitals in Great Britain and Canida. Because, you know, the government doesn't already pay for the health care of citiznes over 65, and 29 other countries--most with national health care--don't have longer life expectancies than the United States.

I'm beginning to think people are kind of gullible.
