    I'm afraid this is one of those situations where we have to move by steps rather than hope for a (historically implausible and politically incredible) leap from one kind of system to another.

    •  MedicareD is a joke, less coverage for low income (0+ / 0-)

      mo' money for insurance companies.

      Medicare D nothing more than private insurance.

        It's a shell game which has made hundreds companies money at the taxpayer expense.

        It served to instal middleman, and employ tens of thousands of people to make a false bureaucracy of private companies and 'gatekeepers'. It has made a whole new cadre of Bush Pioneers - the CEOs and other fat bastards that head up these companies.

        It's created a whole artificial industry to employ blue collar workers who should be in manufacturing real tangible goods and has turned them into yet more 'service workers'.

        What Reagan said in the 80s that 'government isn't the solution, it's the problem' has been outsourced to private companies who operate outside the law, outside accountability and who rape the American taxpayer blind.

        •  Exactly. Glad someone else is paying attention. (0+ / 0-)

          Just like No Child Left Behind. All the materials needed came from companies that were Bushco cronies. Remember My Pet Goat?

          What ever happened to religion being a private matter?
