  •  "Running Dry" And the GOP answer is always .. (4+ / 0-)

    ..to privatize every one of the services listed here:

    What Drum describes are choices for the government. Choices the government has with EVERY SINGLE PROGRAM it runs. Oh by the way, that includes the military. It includes Medicare. It includes funding for student loans for colleges. It includes enforcing the environmental laws
    The republican party is all for these programs when they control the means of redistribution into their own pockets, and it's easy to see why the GOP strives to own/control/privatize all of these various revenue streams, never mentioned as a means for profit (which is exactly why the GOP wants ownership) but for purposes of "fixing" them.

    Excellent undoing of a heretofore hugely successful  frame - hope it gets picked up Armando

    •  Because the GOP isn't really a party (4+ / 0-)

      it is a collection of moneied interests trying to figure out the next way to make enormous profits.   Their platform is simply a list of giveaways to top contributors.    There is a lot of money in Social security, so there are a lot of vultures who want it for themselves.
