Let Them Eat My Cake

Meet the Frost family, of Baltimore, Maryland. They live in a 3,000 square foot house in fashionable Butcher's Hill, and their kids attend the private Park School (annual tuition - $20,000). Dad runs his own business out of a commercial building he owns ($300,000), and their house is worth something north of $500,000 (on which they carry a $200,000 mortgage). But they've decided that they won't buy health insurance.

A couple of years back, Graeme Frost (that's him on the right) was injured in an automobile accident. But because his dad refused to buy health insurance, you and I paid the kid's medical bills. Seems fair to me. (And, by the way, if he was injured in an auto accident, how come the auto insurance didn't pay? Or does dad not bother with that, either?)

This is Harry Reid's poster family for America's health care crisis. According to the Democrats, these guys are so obviously deserving that the Federal Government will send men with guns to your house and take your money to pay the Frost's medical insurance.

I'd like free health care, too. And free food, while you're at it. And cake.
