If we really care for our kids, we should deny them health insurance now to immunize them against expecting it as adults. If we don't, when they grow up, who knows what other unrealistic things they're going to expect? You know, if we fund Head Start now, later, they'll expect education. If we fund school lunches now, later, they'll expect food.

Can you help us out?
