Sen Roland Burris (D-IL) advocates death penalty for non-insured!

…alternatively, he’s just dumber than soap.  From a CNS interview (H/T: Instapundit): “So, in general, if a person doesn’t want health insurance, do you think they should be required by the government to actually have to get it?”

Senator Burris: “Under state law, we have every one required to have automobile insurance. Now, think about that.

Sure, let’s. You see, ‘under state law’ people are not actually required to have automobile insurance: people are required to have automobile insurance if they want to own a car.  So, either this is not a good analogy – which means that Senator Roland Burris is dumber than soap – or it is a good analogy; which would mean that he thinks that people should be required to have insurance if they want to stay alive.  Heaven forbid that I suggest that any sitting Senator could possibly be about as sharp as a sack of wet mice, so I am forced to assume that he’s ready to have the willfully non-insured executed for their crimes.

Also: the Preamble to the Constitution contains the enumerated right for Congress to mandate that people buy health insurance!  Except that it’s only visible to people using those special glasses that Ben Franklin made…

  1. In Texas, at least, there is no requirement for insurance to own a car. Now to operate one on the public streets you’re required to either have liability insurance or to post proof of financial responsibility in a surety bond with the county clerk. So that’s an even more inappropriate analogy.

  2. The funny part of this is the lengths that people will apparently go to argue this on the merits, rather than just admit that Roland Burris is dumber than soap.

  3. Moe,

    You arent required to buy insurance if you OWN a car. Only if you choose to drive on public roads. You can own a farm or ranch truck which stays only on your property and you are not required to have insurance.
