  •  I Proposed Medicare for Sole Proprietors to the 08 (6+ / 0-)

    campaign and later the transition team. I felt it would put Republicans on the spot making them reluctant to vote against "business."

    I also felt it would be a jobs creator because so many people who moonlight can't leave employment to work for themselves full time because of health care.

    This would work all up and down the economic ladder. Every kind of work from child care, clothing alterations, home repairs, artists and craftpeople up thru white collar has moonlighters. There would be jobs of all levels opening up as those who took Personal Responsibility™ quit to self employ full time.

    In the last few days I've also proposed medicare buy-in for uninsured victims of mass shootings or really any kind of violence or accidents.

    I think we should consider musing about sympathetic demographics that we could propose adding to Medicare.

      How about a !000% tax on guns and ammo to cover the buy-in cost ?
