GLENN: So, this guy was talking to me last night and this is what he ask for a living. He looks at the price of oil and how it affects the economy. He said ‑‑ you know, everybody's complaining now that we have 40 million in insured? He predicts that by spring of next year ‑‑ try this on for size ‑‑ there will be 140 uninsured in American, 140 million people uninsured in America. Why? Because he says the fundamentals of business in America have to change. Fed Ex can't do ‑‑ at $200 a barrel. Fed Ex can't do what they do. UPS can't do what they do. The united postal service, how are they going to afford it? How do jets run? He says fresh tuna, going into a seafood restaurant and having fresh food, do you know that the average meal that you sit down and eat, do you know the average meal has traveled 1,500 miles to get to your table? That's incredible. Here. I'll go to my refrigerator. I'm holding a bottle of water from the island of Fiji. $200 ‑‑ we're shipping water on 747's? No, no, seriously. We can afford to ship water, when I get it out of my tap? Come on.
So, now, what's going to happen are these companies are going to say, well, we've got to have the water from Fiji. So, what can we cut? He believes they're going to cut health insurance because the government is, like, yeah. We'll provide health insurance. So, we'll get health insurance from the government. Nobody is notices that capitalism seems to be working all‑around the planet and it's falling apart here because we're ashamed of it. For some reason we're ashamed. Everybody bashes Wal‑Mart. Have you seen what Wal‑Mart has done recently? Oh, Wal‑Mart, they're so evil! Yeah. Yeah. They're so evil. You see that their expanding their low cost drug program? They're now filling prescriptions for up to 350 gentlemen jerk drugs for $10 and that covers a 90‑day period. Drugs for 90 days for $10. Thank you, Wal‑Mart.
There are additional women's medicines available for 9 bucks that include drugs to treat cancer and hormone deficiency. $9 for 90 days.
Why aren't they doing more drugs? You're going to hear that. Also, Wal‑Mart is lowering prices on over a thousand over‑the‑counter meds to $4 or left. They say they have saved Americans over $1 billion since the program was introduced in 2006 and they're responding it every day. Capitalism. Capitalism. It's a good thing.
Now, if you would like to take a glimpse at what the world is going to look like under government's power, here it is. In a story that was not reported an awful lot because this has to do with ‑‑ in case there's a pandemic. Do you know what? I don't even believe that this was developed for a pandemic. Sure. Maybe we're worried about the bird flu still. I think this was ‑‑ this is a blueprint for universal health care. Newly issued report gives guidelines to doctors on who should live and who should die if a deadly pandemic were to sweep the country or the globe. They actually now have a list of who not to give medicine to. If you're too old, no meds for you. Severe burn, no meds for you. Suffer from dementia, no meds. This is great. It's a wonderful list. It was compiled by a task force made up by people from prominent universities, professors, oh, from the people who brought us the final solution. Medical groups and government agencies.
They say that in the event that there aren't enough medical supplies to go around, they have to prioritize who's going to get the medicines and who will get the treatment. This is a pandemic. This isn't if there is enough medicine to go around because somebody doesn't have enough money to afford them. This isn't in case in government is carrying everyone on their shoulder and oil is at $200 a barrel and we're spending our self into oblivion. This has nothing to do with it. This is for a pandemic. This isn't the blueprint for universal health care. This is for the bird flu.
So, who's on the list? People at high risk of death, you're out of luck. Slim chance of long‑term survival? Bye bye. This is going to be great, isn't it? You're over 85, bye bye. So, who has a chance? Who's going to get the medicine? If you have 10 percent chance to live, they bail on you. 27 percent chance, I don't know. I don't know. Do they? Where's the line here? People older than 85 get no treatment. Those with severe trauma which could include critical injuries from car crashes and shootings, no. Severely burned parents older than 60, if you're 59 and a half, Ow! I was on fire for an hour and I'm 59 and a half. Do we give it to them? I hope. If you happen to be in a cab with, you know, your twin, your twin brother, you were born at 11:30. They were born at 12:15. You're 59. They're 60. Boy. Say good‑bye to your brother, man. Oh, that sucks. Those with severe mental impairment, including Alzheimer's. The government says no drugs for you.
