Another Death Tax

Looking through the comment thread trailing this article on the virtues of Canadian single-payer health care, I found the following:

The Bushies love our current system of care because it kills off poor “worthless” people faster than rich folks. That is why they so fervently push no change in our current health care system and no withdrawal from mass murder in Iraq. Another reason they love our current “health” system is that it makes the rich richer and the poor poorer which is the major push of the Cheney presidency (for he really calls all the important shots in their path toward doomsday).

Wait, wait. I thought the whole point of the Bush Adminstration’s economic policies was to transfer the tax burden from “wealth” to “work”? How are they going to do that if the “poor ‘worthless’ people” are all dead? How much taxable income comes out of the sick or near-dead? Or is this a proletariat-chicken-or-the-golden-egg type conundrum? Is a itsy bitsy bit of consistency too much to ask for these days?
