Gee, you think so?

Mary Katherine Ham went to a pro-Obamacare rally in DC, where the following moment of sheer, nearly surreal irony took place:

In a surprising moment, one woman inadvertently delivered an eloquent and heart-wrenching argument against government health care while arguing for it. Her husband, she said, was dropped by his insurance company when he got sick, subsequently survived a massive heart attack, and then went on Social Security disability.

"But when he was approved for Social Security disability income, he was told he had to wait 24 months before he was eligible for Medicare. Why?... The federal government wanted him to die so they didn't have to pay for his medical expenses, and generously gave him two years to do it. Any of this could happen to anyone."
