Well now that our congress critters or should I say vermin have made a boatload of money by holding this country hostage ( I'd love to see for the record who in congress bought short positions in the market before they finished raping the country). It's time to look for the next victim / bubble. They still didn't quite manage to get their hooks into Social Security although they sure gave it the old college try. If memory serves correct they did make a good gash in Medicare and Medicaid. Since they could not totally dismantle the program they'll make it bleed to death by cutting it in non obvious ways. Cut funding to doctors and just try and find a doctor who will provide service. But I believe their hatched plan will backfire when seniors have no choice but to hit the emergency room for their primary care when no one else will see them. Nothing like killing the patient by draining his/her bank account eh?
Then there is the threat of military cuts by the grand committee of budgetdom. If you believe that then you also believe in the tooth fairy and Santa Claus. Think about it for a minute. Who has the greatest lobby power in congress aside from the NRA? And funny how it was a republican (Eisenhower) who warned us of this fate some 50 years ago.
At the rate we're going the old Taliban government of Afghanistan (remember before we invaded?) will sound tame compared to the direction this country is going. Mention the term "women's' health" at any clinic and it's imediately assumed that abortions are provided there.
And the chicken shits are too scared to hold town hall meetings because they know they'd get bitch slapped by their constituents.
I think Bernie Sanders was right when he said it's time for a third party to hold the other two in check. We need a peoples' party that acts in the best interest of the working men and women of this country and aren't beholden to some corporate master. And I'm starting to hear it more and more as time goes by.
