All I can say is that I’m a retired (retirarded?) senior who has had roughly $550/mo for Medicare deducted from my roughly $5,000/month pension for the last eleven years, during which time I have had quadruple bypass heart surgery, two 3-day hospital stays for pneumonia, six months of chemo + radiation for Lymphoma in 2013 and another 4 months of radiation treatment for Lymphoma in 2016, and the only co-pays I’ve had have been for the asthma inhalers & statins that I need daily. Probably close to $1 Million in (highly inflated) hospital costs charged to Medicare, but close to zero in my own out-of-pocket expenses. Medicare is quite a bargain, IMHO. (Maybe some of my critics now understand why I’m such a cynical and curmudgeonly bastard at times. SFAIK, Arrogant Bastard Ale really was named after me.)
AMEN!! Not to mention the 2016 DNC sabotage of the Sanders campaign. It’s Time to Ditch the Bug-Eyed Bitch (DWS), chuck Chucky, purge Pelosi and punt Podesta!! Defenestrate the Fat Cats!!
BTW, I was watching MSNBC earlier today, and was DISGUSTED by Chris Hayes’ open opposition to Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley’s support for the new Medicare for All bill that already has the co-sponsor support of sixteen (16, count 'em, 16) of his fellow senators. Talk about shilling for the Establishent, Chris is almost as bad as SHilliary . . .
Right On!! Her many negatives aside, Shilliary’s 2016 campaign proved that it takes more than just being against something awful to succeed. Bernie at least gives us something to be FOR, and even if it has only
a snowball’s chance in Hell of succeeding it’s worthy of our support!!
