So it boils down to...who is to blame for the sequester? I think a lot more people than we’d like are blaming us. It is we who are sending people headlong to their deaths.
How are cancer clinics being affected by the sequester? They might be affected by Obamacare, but not the sequester.
I thin eventually more of the public will be placing the blame on everyone, Republican and Democrat, who is not addressing Medicare responsibly. Medicare could singlehandedly bankrupt the nation; we could be at the point where the gov’t feels pressured to neglect everything else in favor of spending money on Medicare and Social Security. Look at the tens of trillions of dollars that had at one point been promised for it. Eventually, we are gonna have to figure out where it is all going and what can be done to stop it from bankrupting our nation. Perhaps for starters asking those who can afford their own medical care to go ahead and do so. And maybe at some point more people might start wondering if frantically trying to keep everyone alive for 95 or 100 years or more is absolutely necessary. It would understandably be considered callous, but what happens when everyone from the richest down to the working class feels themselves buried by out of control tax burdens and finds out the education, national defense and the military, science, universities and everything else could get neglected because of Social Security and Medicare?
They have allowed themselves to be put in this situation. Not just allowed, but jumped in to it.
If they keep playing money games like this, they will no only loose the House, but allow the Dems to get a super majority.
