  •  The only way to save Medicare is to reform it (0+ / 0-)

    but not in this way. First thing- support Bernie Sanders' Saving American Democracy Amendment. The cynic in me makes me think that  this stands the proverbial snowballs chance..., but what the devil.

    Change the government. If we progressives ever stand a chance ( Hell, I thought Wyden was a progressive!) we have to model the tea party and start a grassroots movement to take over Congress and the Presidency.

    Use social media to inundate your local and the national media with the message. Occupy Wall Street was the beginning. If the progressive movement and unions can get their acts together the desired can be accomplished.

    We have to emulate the Scandinavian countries as far as social reform. The EU is falling apart, in no small part due to the corruption of the governments but also greed in general. Learn from what works and what doesn't.

    What works is relatively simple-no need to re-invent the wheel as they say. What isn't simple is weeding out the corrupt, the greedy and the downright insane.

    Nuff said.
