Are you not aware, tele, that large numbers of American retirees have moved to South and Central America. Are you not aware that there are apartment and condominium complexes in Mexico, Costa Rica and Nicaragua which have been specifically built for Americans?

Are you not aware that American insurance companies are willing, if not eager, to authorize complicated surgery for their clients in Thailand and India? Medical tourism.

I expect the Daily Mail could make a pretty lurid front page story out of this stuff, about America exporting its elderly and ill. I doubt you'd quote it unless you could find a way to blame it on Obama.

By the way, I've noticed that a lot of right wingers have started quoting the Daily Mail. It reads a lot like the New York Post but is not a Murdock holding.
