Dr. Kevorkian on Health Care

New York magazine interviews Dr. Jack Kevorkian about health care reform. He doesn’t much like the new scenario, and has some thoughts of his own: “Everybody should pay for health care, and therefore you should tax everybody a little, and the fairest way is to tax profits. So that if a person has more money one year over the last year, then he pays ten percent of that excess. So that everybody pays equally. And all the corporations and everybody pays that way.” Kevorkian also weighs in on the state of Detroit (“a dying city, if it’s not already dead”) and the “not very rosy” future of the planet. Verdict: not an optimistic man. [%comments]
