  •  I agree except for "being privatized (7+ / 0-)

    because it's cheaper."

    That's a right-wing talking point, or meme that politicians of all stripes love to spout.  Don't fall for it.

    This is being done for reasons of conservative (libertarian) ideology.  Just like the rest of the 'fiscal crises hysteria' is intended to frighten folks into allowing the PtB to do what they would NEVER normally get away with--eviscerate the social safety net.

    It is almost ALWAYS MORE EXPENSIVE WHEN FARMED OUT TO THE PRIVATE SECTOR.

    For instance:  Medicare vs Private Health Insurance.
