Socialism is a drug and Bush is the pusher creating a nation of addicts. Thanks George, you done good.

the latest wealth transfer from the young to the old...
and
...the Gimme Generation will clean up and our children will be paying for it the rest of their lives.

These statements say it all. I used to feel sorry for the elderly having to pay a hunert dollars+ per script. Then my mom had hip replacement a year ago and she bragged about Medicare pays for.....All the way down to the pedicure and free shoes. Understand that you can't bend over to clip your nails when you have replacement surgery but why can't a neighbor or family member do it???!!!!

After that 4 weeks of watching Medicare dish it out I no longer felt sorry for ANY elderly. Unfortunately, the Veterans Admin. is almost as bad but I know a growing number of vets who refuse their services.

Bush has been a spending nightmare.

Both sides -- Republicans and Democrats -- have drifted significantly leftward.

We got problems. The generations having to pay for this hopefully will rebel. The problem is whom are they going to support? The Republicans have stunk things up badly by passing this socialist crap. The dims are beyond insane. The LP is not exactly full of grownups -- they don't understand national sovereignty at all. The result is apathy and whomever has the most brutal will to dominate us could win.

Gee, did it ever dawn on these fedgov imbeciles to investigate the pricing practices of these drug companies that have caused drug prices to increase so dramatically? This program looks like carte blanche to gouge the taxpayers once again.

What were those deductions from our pay checks for? We were told it was to pay for medicare. If it did pay for medicare, then Boortz's assertion is dishonest. If it didn't pay for medicare, then we were robbed, and Boortz's assertion is still dishonest.
