    I'm sorry Mr.Nova but the committee has unanimously decided that due to your lifestyle choices we are withholding any further medical treatment from you, but we have pain relievers to make you as comfortable as possible, we have only enough funds for those who really deserve treatment, I'm sure you understand.

    That's nice, but the ACA forbids insurance companies from pulling that routine on me or you. And yes, I realize that my addiction to Dim Sum in unhealthy, but not as unhealthy as your addiction to pork BBQ, liquor, and potatoe salad.

    True, there are also a few that retire before Medicare kicks in making such a plan the primary coverage for a few years. Often this is combined with an early retirement package to encourage older workers to retire so some of the younger folks can keep jobs.

    Do you make them yourself or are they readily available for purchase close to where you live? I've never heard of them until now.

    Then it's a good thing that all of those Obama cronies have gotten their exemptions, isn't it?

    Occasionally they have them at the Oriental market where I buy my lumpia wrappers. I also like the Vietnamese version of a pork bun, called Banh Bao.
