I am not sure whether you intended to be ironic with your May 26 editorial note that suggests that Americans living in Costa Rica should be provided with Medicare, but not have to pay taxes. It is too similar to the Tea Party protesting health care reform with their signs “keep the government’s hands off my Medicare.”
This type of twisted sense of entitlement perfectly encapsulates the views of too many that wants government to provide a broad array of services, but doesn’t want to pay for any of them.
