I think, at this point, you are just defending your position that you got backed into, because no sane person could defend the idea 'Decisions that cost lives to save money are OK, because we all die, and I would be sad if I was poor'
The virus is doing the killing, not people. Murder and death by disease that could be preventable with others financial support are two different things. You haven't given every penny you have to cure cancer and alzeihemers I imagine? So you must be killing those people then?
