I do not believe that the GOP "hate the poor, elderly and disabled with a white hot passion. Hate is inefficient. It is nonproductive. They are simply businessmen and sales people. Their white hot passion is for money. They are not distracted by external issues such as life on this planet or any other existential issue. They are simple and efficient predators. They are products of the natural world.
The boomers are aging and like a freight train out of control. The American population has the highest degree of morbidity of any industrial nation. It makes business sense to cut the boomers off at the pass and gut Medicaid. The costs for nursing homes is exploding and boomers do not have much in the form of retirement. This bill MUST pass and it is a brilliant tactical move to defend the fortunes of the wealthy. To expect the US government (aka global corporate multinationals) to cover any of your bills in old age is not realistic. The writing is on the wall, folks. The multinationals and the rich are clearly prevailing. They own both parties and we simply are entertained by their political theater. Calling your legislator is the same as praying to God. But praying is more satisfying as there is a slim chance someone is listening.
Stay as healthy as you can. This will buy you time and increase your enjoyment of this temporary existence and keep you out of the hands of the predators. And predators is what they are. Always watching and waiting to get your resources. You can lament but it does not change this fact. Life is a predatory system!
