    Romney, Ryan and the whole AynRandian lot of them can go fuck themselves.

    I haven't heard Word One about how you give vouchers to the MILLIONS of severely disabled Americans on Medicare. No one ever talks about us. What for-profit private insurance company is going to take a coupon from a disabled person under 65 on Medicare, who by definition has an illness (or multiple illnesses) making him/her too sick to work ANY job in the American economy?

    It is a death sentence. 'Vouchers' for the millions of disabled Americans, like me, on Medicare is a DEATH SENTENCE. We are UNINSURABLE in the commercial marketplace, no matter the size of the coupon.

    •  This needs to be a YouTube rant series. Make (0+ / 0-)

      a series of rants and post them on YouTube.  With the same ending line in all of them:  "I'm [x information here] and Romney and Ryan [or the Republicans, depending on what people are ranting about] can go fuck themselves!"

      That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10

        I'll write about it when I feel well enough. I'm a professional writer/journalist, so 'ranting on YouTube' is not what I do.

        It does appall me that my colleagues in the MSM and my friends here in the progressive blogosphere can't be bothered to say a thing about the millions of disabled Americans on Social Security and Medicare when covering these issues. We represent a far more vulnerable population, overall, than the majority of seniors. At 72, 73 and 74, ALL of my parents combined (dad, stepdad & mom) use a fraction of the Medicare services that I require. And I am relatively 'healthy' compared to other disabled Americans.
