What do Castro and Obama have in common?

No, besides that. Besides that. And that. No, but they do both love themselves some health insurance mandates.

Cuba to require medical insurance for visitors

Source: Reuters
HAVANA, March 6 (Reuters) - Cash-strapped Cuba will require visitors to buy health insurance if they want to enter the country, according to a new government measure disclosed on Saturday.

I think we can relate to the cash-strapped part too.

You know what else they have in common? They know what side of their bread is buttered.

It exempts diplomats and representatives of accredited international organizations. The cost of the insurance was not disclosed.

Exempting those who prop you up and not disclosing the cost seems to be a common theme in health care these days.

How many sick people go on vacation, to a foreign country at that?

Sucker bet and at best, simply a head tax to enter the country. Castro is laughing his ass off all the way to the bank.

I think this is a great idea! No longer do we need to be condemned as racists for being against illegal immigration. Now we can be against foreign nationals based on their health insurance status.

I don't want them deported because they are here illegally. I want them deported because they don't have health insurance.

Of course, Barry is likely to one up Castro by making sure that his Obamacare covers every one of the 6 billion people on the face of the earth.

...which means that together with Obama and Castro, you can add Mitt Romney. Get those commie bastards!
