Got a brain tumor? Come back in eight months!

I try so hard to explain to lefty friends that this is a very, very bad, even inhumane, idea. But it feels so good to support "free" health care for "everyone" that they have trouble letting go. If Hillary's dream comes true, all of us will have a great deal of trouble feeling good about anything, especially if it requires timely medical care.
