  •  But it was corporations... (0+ / 0-)

    ... who wrote the legislation that our Cretinous Congress Critters passed... instead of giving us not-for-profit single-payer medical insurance..., like Medicare Part A and Part B which already exists for retired and disabled people who have it.  From the day of our first paycheck to death, we pay monthly premiums for Medicare or it's deducted out of our Social Security checks.

    It would have been SO easy to just change the law to allow anyone to buy into the Medicare they're already paying for..., but nnnoooooooooooo....  They went for the model started for Medicare Part D [prescription insurance] that forces people to buy corporate insurance for prescription medications via a law that says 'buy this corporate insurance or else' as the model for ACA's "buy this corporate insurance or pay a fine of $1000."

    We no longer have smart Congress Critters who used to be statesmen.  We have corporate congressional stooges who pass laws in exchange for lots and lots of "campaign contributions" given to them by corporations.

    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
