  • A Grand Bargain: 8 Factors That Could Drive A Surprise On The Deficit [View article]
    Medicare for all?

    Is this the same Medicare that "saves" money by short paying doctors, forcing more and more to stop accepting medicare patients?

    Is this the same medicare that pays for services provided, rather than by outcome, and is the source of most of the payment codes used by insurance companies?

    Is this the same medicare that is administered by the insurance companies the states contract with?

    Is this the same medicare that wastes $40B paying false claims.

    Is this the same medicare with a projected $13 trillion deficit in 75 years?

    Medicare for all is definitely not the answer. It's part of the problem!

    No, actually, I don't get my news from Fox. There were many Republicans in 2009 and 2010 who told how their overtures to work with Obama were shunned. Especially telling was the healthcare conference where any Republican idea was met with eye-rolling and sarcasm. His giveaways to the unions were another indication his "reasonable people can work together" was insincere.

    Get your news from the MSM, do you?

    As long as they do everything Obama's way. It's his way or the highway. Bipartisanship was just a hopey, changey campaign plug.

    I didn't realize our presence in Japan resulted from a failed war. Thought we won that one, occupied them, then made sure they weren't a takeover target because of the diminished military we imposed on them.

    Be that as it may, it's time we withdrew from Japan and Korea and let them defend themselves. Europe too. We have bigger fish to fry.

    MLK was every bit a politician, with the courage of his convictions. Obama does not hold a candle to him.

    "The longer out you project, the more likely it is it won't be accurate due to all the things we can't forsee."

    This true in climate science, as well.
