  •  Sorry if intruded on your anger with a dose of (0+ / 0-)

    reality.  You're obviously not in the mood to talk about it so have a great day.

    •  I would wager that stating (0+ / 0-)

      that Obama was right to enable Republicans' gutting of Medicare and that this was 'reform' is a bit outside of reality.

      •  So you consider cutting payments to providers (0+ / 0-)

        analogous with "gutting Medicare"?  I wrote a comment in a diary this week describing the excessive medical treatment my father (aged 81, a Medicare recipient who has never had a moment of bad health in his life) receives.  Believe me, the physicians, medical practices, etc are taking tax payers for a ride.  I'll tell you what I told conservatives during the healthcare debate when they said "the Democrats are fooling around with 17% of the economy".  

        The problem "is" that healthcare is 17% of the economy.  That has to change.
