You people are so mean...
The way I look at this, and without being accused of enjoying schadenfreude, is that if I myself should have to leave this world at a tender young age of 79, I should not regret that I would have to die so soon because of lack of money to get better medical treatment. The Grim Reaper accepts no bribery.
Many rich people do not have the same longevity as some peasants, and I do not believe that the former all indulged in drugs and "hard living".
