    To paraphrase a Teabaggie....
    Keep your gubmint hands offa my SS and Medicare.
    (ok, ok, ok sorta a snark, but a serious one)
    I've worked very long AND very hard for both my SS and Medicare and I'll be damned if I let anyone ('R', 'D' or 'I') screw me outta either in my 'golden' years.

    I think, therefore I am........................... Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose....AKA Engine Nighthawk - don't even ask!

      ..I'm a few years out but they better not screw with mine either, I worked hard and paid in for too long. I suspect there will be lots of retiring baby boomers fighting hard against this....hope I'm not wrong.

    •  3rd it (6+ / 0-)

      Just began my 3rd month of Medicare and SS - to quote Chuck Heston, they can have it when they pry it out of my cold, dead hand.  Of course, doing that wouldn't bother them one bit.

      The huge irony is that money and access to good health care is what has kept these fossils active to push their plutocratic idiocy.

      Again, bring on the tumbrels - I'll dig out the yarn and my knitting needles.

      •  Yup.... (0+ / 0-)

        A modern day 'Tale of Two Cities'....
        DC (do they really know what's goin' on?  And do they really care?)
        and
        Main Street USA (where we live what's goin' on, and we really DO care!).
