    Isn't it great that health care is politicized now?

      Don't expect much science or compassion from the Mad King's administration.

        No surprise here. Science is lumped in with the left wing agenda, to do..whatever.

          Context (strangely missing from a lot of articles):

          https://thinkprogress.org/top-trump-...s-9388a1ded06b
          Mulvaney was asked whether he agreed with the “Jimmy Kimmel test” — or the idea famously forwarded by the late-night show host that “No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life.” Kimmel made the quip while delivering an impassioned account of his newborn son’s struggle to survive a congenital heart disease.

          Mulvaney said he agreed with the idea in principle, but with one a very specific caveat: taxpayers shouldn’t help people who fall ill because of, ostensibly, their own actions.

          “That doesn’t mean we should take care of the person who sits at home, eats poorly and gets diabetes,” Mulvaney said. “Is that the same thing as Jimmy Kimmel’s kid? I don’t think that it is.”

            I'll bet that smokers wouldn't get coverage for COPD or lung cancer.

                If you only had one set of lungs, and you could give it to one of two COPD or lung cancer sufferers, would you give it to the chain smoker or the person who never smoked in his life?

                  This is exactly what I was complaining about.
