I agree, it's become impossible to actually tell one bagger from the other anymore. I have always enjoyed your posts as it is obvious that you not only are a very smart lady, but your sense of humor at times is way to deep for the baggers on here.
Well, thank you, kind sir. You have always been "one of a kind" in chivalry and common sense. Right now have the urge to take a shower, "paint up my face and roll and curl my tinted hair," and go out into the real world for a bit of sunshine. You can leave these baggers to wallow in their own swill or stay and keep up the good fight, but you have to be aware that (1) most of "them" are one and the same,(2) things mean what they say they mean when the say they mean it, and (3) their incapable of learning from their mistakes...hate the say it, but we' be much better off when they're all dead--which can't be much longer. Later...

Medicare Part D: Republican Budget-Busting

Ten years ago this week, Republicans enacted the largest expansion of the welfare state since the creation of Medicare in 1965 by adding a huge unfunded program providing coverage for prescription drugs to the Medicare program.

For years, responsible critics had said it was a system flaw that Medicare did not pay for prescription drugs along with hospitalization and doctorsí visits. By 2003, strong bipartisan support existed for expanding Medicare to include prescription drugs.

Republicans were keen to make sure that the legislation enacted was theirs, because the Democrats were certain to include cost containment for drugs in their legislation. It was widely believed that if the federal government used its buying power to pressure drug companies to cut drug prices, the cost of providing drugs to Medicare recipients would be substantially reduced.

But forcing down drug prices would diminish the drug companiesí profits and Republicans were adamantly opposed to that. Consequently, despite their oft-repeated opposition to new entitlement programs, they got behind the new drug benefit, now known as Medicare Part D, and made sure there was no cost-containment provision.

George W. Bush strongly supported this effort. Looking ahead to a close re-election in 2004, he thought a new government giveaway to the elderly would increase his vote share among this group. According to exit polls, those over age 65 gave Mr. Bush only 47 percent of their vote in 2000, with 51 percent going to Al Gore.

From the beginning, Republicans decided to forgo dedicated financing for Part D. Except for trivial premiums paid by recipients, the entire cost would fall on taxpayers. Moreover, Republicans refused to raise the Medicare tax or cut spending to cover Part D. Hence, the deficit increased by virtually the entire cost of the program.

The same Obama administration that has had more people die in AFghhanistan than Bush now is wanting to ban cigarettes from being sold on bases.

You can die for the Anti-American thug, Obama, but you can't have any freedom!
