  •  How about negotiating drug prices (6+ / 0-)

    like the VA and private insurance do?

    Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.

      We know how we got in this mess.  We know how to get out.  This is the first time we've waged war (two actually) without raising taxes.
      1.  Raise the top marginal tax rate to a wartime 90%+.  This 39% is a joke.  Tax capital gains as ordinary income.
      2.  Medicare Part D:  Let the government negotiate drug prices with big pharma.  Raise rates to pay for the rest.
      3.  Bush tax cuts: Reverse them for everyone.

      If Republicans won't go along, tell them to shut the #$%# up because they're not serious about deficit reduction.

      And get us completely out of Afghanistan in 2013.

      Even Democrats can be asses. Look at Rahm Emanuel.
