Retweeted by Tim O'ReillyBecause that's what health care is. If you don't get what you need, you can die. It's a threat to murder you if you don't pay.
Retweeted by Tim O'ReillyCancer pills *don't cost* hundreds of dollars a pill. They cost a few cents. You aren't paying for health care, you are paying for yachts.
