  •  That's pretty much what I figured, but what (0+ / 0-)

    most Democrats are too cowardly to say.

    So -- query me this, Batman:

    If costs go through the roof, how much health care are you likely to get?

    I'm told it's better in some parts of the country, but I see family members having one hell of a time with Medicare and the doctors they can get. I'm terrified of what it will be like when I turn 65 in a few more years.

    At some point, there is a limit to how much you can tax people without having a significant negative impact on them and on the economy.  A constantly increasing debt requires a constantly increasing chunk of money just to cover debt payments. Services suffer or taxes must be increased.  There is a limit to how much you can raise taxes, so...services will suffer.
