"Unfortunately, you have a fatal pre-existing condition, which we insurers call 'Life.'"
"I’m sorry, but the enormous Obamacare debt you were born with is the only pre-existing condition we cannot cover."
"I'm sorry, but your birth isn't covered under your present policy."
"We're hoping that 2010 will be a premium year! Big premium!"
"I'm afraid we can't cover you. I understand you only have a year to live."
"Your new policy is backed by $11.4 trillion of U.S. debt."
"Sorry, we're switching to end of life counseling."
