  •  with Medicaid cuts, expect (2+ / 0-)

    more people who have to choose which medicines they are going to buy and which meds they will do without. Also with Medicaid and Medicare HMOs expect more shifting formularies so that people end up on generics which are not the same as name brand.

    •  NO TO MEDICAID CUTS. Bull Poo Poo (0+ / 0-)

      Increase country club taxes.

      Don't take away from the poor.  This will only create social chaos.

      Poverty does not mean powerless. Unite!

      •  When you, a family member, or friend (0+ / 0-)

        is denied necessary medical care, that is social chaos unless you subscribe to Marie Antoinette's POV which paraphrased, is God loves the poor because He made so many, just like flies.

        •  I was denied. At 61 insurance is not an option. (0+ / 0-)

          $8000 minimum per year.  Who can afford that?  And then there is the additional out of pocket.  And at 61 they will refuse everything anyway as being preexisting.  Screw the insurance companies.  They will never get a dime of my money.  And, if I become terminally ill, I plan to die on the streets of DC.  I will get there somehow and become the first DIE IN to protest the immoral treatment of US Citizens, especially my age group.  I worked hard all my life.  Is it my fault the employers were too damn cheap to pay a decent wage for my hard work.  The greedy bastards!

          My daughter lost her insurance through divorce.

          My family is uninsured.  I don't play because I am afraid of breaking something.

          Where did my country go?

          Poverty does not mean powerless. Unite!
