    Voted against Bush’s Medicare prescription drug bill
    ... was a good thing to do.  Too bad more Democrats didn't vote against that shite.

    As a person who is on Medicare and gets Part D, I resent the hell out of paying a corporation for prescription insurance that benefits only the profit margin of insurance and pharmaceutical corporations.  I'd much rather it be included on the pre-paid Part A and Part B of Medicare which WE pay for (when we are working, and also after we retire and Medicare premiums are deducted before Social Security is deposited in one's account).  Part D is all corporate insurance for prescription drugs, and we are responsible for paying that out of Social Security (either as retired persons, or as disabled recipients who get SSDI & also qualify for Medicare).

    That clause in the Bushista Medicare Part D prescription plan said "buy corporate prescription insurance or else."

    The plan for corporate insurance THIS time around says "buy corporate medical insurance or pay a fine of $1000."

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
