    me, you have no idea how hard I have fought for myself and others as a social worker and with no end in sight.  I've gone right up against VP of hospitals about bills for my patients.  Medicare D was horrible for my patients on Medicaid since it killed their spend downs and being able to get their other meds.  I don't know how many of my dialysis patients died on Medicaid when they couldn't afford Medicare D.   I know of at least two.  It is a losing battle because they just will continue to chip away until there is nothing.  

    Plus all this give us is another year and that is it.  Congress and Senate listen to no one but the big guys and they could give a crap less about the people.  We'll be right back in this mess months from now.  And if you look at the permanent Bush tax break that was given it was for all of them and all of their salaries will now be taxed less than the rest of us.  All of this and they give themselves a raise.  Sorry, I'm seeing nothing but red.  I don't feel relieved at all since I've been hanging overboard by my ankles for the last month and now they've decided to wait a while before throwing me overboard.  Oh joy.
