Twists and Turns: Politics and Your Health

Medicare and Political Antics

I try not to be too political when citing issues for Natural Health News, however I can’t let this one pass.
If you take the time to read these articles you get a clear picture that it’s the party and the dogma that matters. 
People just don’t count.

And the presumptive silliness on the part of these alleged adults and their ridiculous behavior tell you even more.
Might you ask, why did these men (sic) ever get elected?

Back home a lot of voters are speaking out against his folly. In Arizona, constituents demanded to know why there is support for turning Medicare over to private insurers.

Of course you aren’t hearing too much at the same time about the republican handouts to Big Insurance over the Senior Drug Plan, Medicare Part D. Even in its reduced form that Obama dealt out some months back, the handouts and perks to PhRMA and Insurance are just too much for the budget. Cuts can be made here and strictly on the supply side.

Ever wonder where your member of Congress gets financial backing? 

And don’t you think we need responsible elected officials who are willing to stick their necks out to fight for the people who elected them rather than toting party dogma and panting feverishly in wait for the gravy train?
