  •  No, it's like a double coupon (8+ / 0-)

    Not only are we the taxpayer saving $716 billion, but the recipient is saving $700 from closing the donuthole and more from having no co-pays for check-ups and certain tests.

    In terms of groceries, it's like being able to not only buy your $1000 of groceries for $800, but that you get cash back for free gas and a shitload of coupons to get more free and discounted stuff at the market next month.

      government teat and gets free stuff" in their blindness.  Just a concern about going too in on "free stuff" in an analogy.  But I hear your point about savings value.

      I like the diary premise:   short, concise, and yes, perfect "kitchen table" explanation.

      I believe we help each other in times of need. I want all our children to get an excellent education. Every American deserves health care. I love my country. I am a patriot. I am a voter. I am a Democrat.
