    What we would be doing in that case is doubling down on the damage to workers — they’re already hurting because income is shifting away from labor, and we’re going to hurt them even more by cutting the benefits they depend upon.
    Now if we could just make it harder for the elderly, disabled, Veterans, and poor to get medical care, or at least delay getting it, think of the advantages to the Budget that would have! Why that would save enough money on Social Security and Medicare/caid to make it worthwhile to transfer those to private hands.

    Plus, we wouldn't have to fund all those death panels.

    So far, the plan is looking like a Win/Win all around for the people who matter.
