Nice Job Jackass.



I'm following up on yesterday's medicare comments. I'd like to point out that our genius president is threatening to veto changes to Medicare's prescription drug benefits. Please keep in mind that this program constitutes over two hundred billion dollars in unfunded liability to Medicare. I wonder what it'll take before we start paying attention to this critical, but failing social program...

Just curious, what would you do? I don't know much about the healthcare industry, but one thing the Washington Monthly article you linked in the last post rings true: too few doctors. Furthermore, the way doctors are lobbied by pharmaceutical companies to prescribe new and expensive drugs seems a bit unsavory. And once you've been prescribed a drug or treatment, do you neccessarily have a right to have it? I don't know.
