People will just have to be good Americans and pick themselves up by their tissue boxes.

There is no substitute for the dignity of illness and the freedom to die. Disease happens and it is not an excuse to get some form of disaster welfare when able bodied people are able to exercise the independence of fevers, coughing, hacking, fevers and breathing difficulties in the way they see fit. Handouts will only discourage recovery and encourage idleness and dependence.

In fact, we won't even get tossed a free box of tissues.
