Keep the government off my government program!

From Harold Pollak of The New Republic:

I talked with one retired vet carrying a sign that read, “Drop dead, I’m not paying for your health care.” I asked what he meant by that. He said, simply, “I should not have to pay for your medical care.” I asked him if he applies that standard to Medicare. Yes he does. I asked if he therefore feels guilty using the program. “I use the VA.”

Oh, you want my opinion? I think commentary is unnecessary. The quote speaks for itself.
