      for Medicaid and Medicare and getting nothing in return except a mandate to turn over our money to private corps.  And they call us the retards?

    •  In Germany a retail worker (0+ / 0-)

      might get paid about $15/hour.

      •  With a significantly lower cost and risk exposure (0+ / 0-)

        meaning, they can better manage that income.

        Risk = dollars, specifically, liquid dollars.  If your risk is high, your income is lower because you have to either suffer the risk and take those costs, or pay down the risk, which also costs.

        IF THEY ARE GOING TO SCREW THE PEOPLE, MAKE THEM OWN IT.
