    This is far better than anything up to now.

    And social security is off the table.  

    I heard thart veto threat.  So you think Rs are going to agree to high end tax cuts?

    The American people must wise up and rise up!

      UGH.

      Among the hikes under consideration are:

      Increasing the deductible for doctors' services (part B of Medicare) by $25 in 2017, 2019 and 2021,

      Requiring $100 co-payments for home health care visits,

      Charging an extra 15 percent premium on people who have especially generous Medi-gap plans,

      Hiking the premiums by 15 percent for Medicare recipients who earn from $85,000 to about $210,000, to raise about $20 billion.

    •  I'd like to see some specifics on the Buffett Tax (1+ / 0-)

      Obviously, it will never reach the House floor, much less get passed, in this Congress.  It's a rhetorical device.  I'll take it a little more seriously if actual details of a proposal are divulged.

      While alienating DINOs like Penn is always a good thing, I fear that it's a token campaign promise (like the 2008 promise to renegotiate NAFTA) that isn't ever intended to be kept.

      Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?
