Why isn't he dead yet

Senator Mitch McConnell, who has civil service insurance and is old enough to be on Medicare, warns us that government run insurance kills people.
I think if you have any kind of government insurance program, you're going to be stuck with it and it will lead us in the direction of the European style, you know, sort of British-style, single payer, government run system. And those systems are known for delays, denial of care and, you know, if your particular malady doesn't fit the government regulation, you don't get the medication. And it may cost you your life.

This is another one for the "follow-up questions you wish reporters would ask, but you know they won't" file.
