  •  Failure to allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices (8+ / 0-)

    is the huge red flag that signals Obama's punitive approach to seniors and the disabled.  Without them, the Medicare cuts are just mean spirited, vindictive.

    It is an old strategy of tyrants to delude their victims into fighting their battles for them. FDR

    •  Now THAT gets to an interesting realm. (0+ / 0-)

      As big as the Medicare money pot is, I wonder if that would provide some room to actually accomplish some of the health care reform that ACA didn't bother doing?

      Medicare costs vary wildly from place to place, in ways that have little to do with the quality of care being provided and plenty to do with the avarice of providers.
