California Gave Charles Manson Far Better Health Care Than It Provides To Obamacare Recipients
Lloyd Billingsley, Daily Caller
Notorious criminal Charles Manson, who passed away last month in a California hospital, has certainly made the list of celebrities who died in 2017. For observers of any age, particularly millennials, Manson’s departure is worthy of reflection on a couple of points.
For those who might have any doubts, Manson provides evidence that evil does, in fact, exist. See Vincent Bugliosi’s “Helter Skelter” for details about the murder spree he masterminded. Victims included actress Sharon Tate (“Valley of the Dolls”) and her unborn child.
According to Bugliosi, Manson was hoping to launch a race war between black people and white people, after which, he believed, victorious black people would turn to him for advice. He drew a death sentence but the California Supreme Court overturned the state’s death penalty statute.
So it was off to prison for Manson, with possibility of parole, incredibly enough.
California prisons are tough places and Manson was sometimes a target for violence. Even so, Manson lived to the ripe, old age of 83, and health care doubtless played a major role.
Amazingly, Charles Manson, one of the worst people ever to exist, enjoyed better health care than most Californians.
About 1.3 million people get health insurance through Covered California, the Golden State’s wholly owned subsidiary of Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act. Covered California was supposed to achieve great improvements, but it didn’t work out that way.
