    ...he seems to have very little grasp of how diseases work.  Many illnesses are the results of so-called "lifestyle" choices.  Isn't the lung cancer patient also "victimizing innocent citizens by forcing them to pay for his care?"  After all, he chose to smoke, right?  Or what about the diabetes (pronounced, per the indomitable Wilford Brimley, "diaBEETus") patient?  Did they really have to eat all those sweets?

    Penalizing sick people is certainly one way to bring down health care costs.  Just not a very compassionate one.  I guess in Ron Paul's America people would just be left to die in the streets.  So much for "first, do no harm."
