    for health care reform?

    We had this whole big ACA bill aimed at helath insurance, with only a dab or two at health care.

    Guess what?

    Medicare is also affected by health care costs.
    Fail to corral those, and Medicare goes up and up and up.

    We pay for Medicare in exactly the same way we pay for Social Security (but without a cap): every dollar we earn is taxed 2.9% (though half is hidden  away from those who work for somebody else as a so-called "employer's share") to pay for Medicare.

    What is the rationale and justice for now saying, "Well -- yeah, sure, but...gosh no."

    LG: You know what? You got spunk. MR: Well, Yes... LG: I hate spunk!
