Has been FOREVER since seeing this one. This one was a worthy attempt with a recent star (Scheider)

And we didn't fully comprehend the vast amount of healthcare

them appropriately for their disproportionate burden on our
healthcare system.

And then as an act of irony, pretty much every cent collected in tobacco tax does NOT go towards health care.
