26. Pretty sure it would cover 1 million to 2.5 million people for life.
Gotta remember not everyone is going to need care 24/7/365.

29. Oy Vey. Let me lay this out for you to understand.
1 billion dollars.

20 million people = 50 dollars

5 million people = 200 dollars

4 million people = 250 dollars

3 million people = 333 dollars

2 million people = 500 dollars

1 million people = 1000 dollars


------------------------

Even assuming the number is 1 million people, you are making the absurd assumption that an entire lifetime's worth of healthcare for a healthy person will only cost 1000 dollars. Yearly check ups will easily outpace that cost. Easily.

25. Perhaps you should have used something
else besides getting "screwed" It's abhorrent to use such a depiction.

"I'm so cool I sign letters with my first name only."

Not terribly clever. But right wingers might get a big hee haw out of it.
