A writer for the National Review offers his idea for health care reform: die younger.

The National Review's Mark Hemingway has an interesting perspective on health care reform, to say the least. From a post he put up at the Corner during President Obama's address to Congress:

Why do Democrats push preventative health care as a cost savings measure at every turn? If you want to save the healthcare system money, drop dead of a heart attack at 50. Living to 88 on the other hand -- that's expensive.

Somehow, I don't think that's going to catch on as a political argument.
