Boudreaux and GI Insurance
Boudreaux's first military assignment was to a military induction center, and because he was a good talker, they assigned him the duty of advising new recruits about the government benefits, especially the GI Insurance to which they were entitled.
Before long, the Captain in charge of the induction center began noticing that Boudreaux was getting a 100% sign up for the top GI Insurance.
This was odd because it would cost these poor inductees nearly $30 per month more for their higher coverage than what the government was already granting. The Captain decided that he would not ask Boudreaux about his selling techniques, but that he would sit in the back of the room and watch Boudreaux's sales pitch.
Boudreaux stood up before his latest group of inductees and stated, "If you have da normal GI Insurance and go to Iraq and get killed, the government pays your beneficiary $6,000. If you take out da supplemental GI Insurance (which costs you only $30 a month), the government has to pay your beneficiary $200,000."
"NOW," Boudreaux concluded, "which bunch do you think dey gonna send to Iraq first?"
