    "I know Alan's district. The 8th District of Florida is not a walk in the park. This is a competitive district - one that the Republicans are very upset that they lost. They are going to go after it, and they are going to go after it hard. Alan Grayson is going to need your help. He's going to need you to help him at the grassroots level by going out and volunteering for his campaign. And, he's going to need you... go to CongressmanWithGuts.com and make a contribution to Alan Grayson's re-election campaign. We're in the fight of our lives." - Debbie Wasserman Schultz

    Florida is a retiree state.
    They love blank check health care where 74% of all dollars spent treats chronic diseases.
    Try to change that and they will squeal.
    Georgia is against it big time but we are GOP hard core so it would not matter anyway.

    It'd be awesome if we could unload all these selfish old farts. It cracks me up that they rail against socialized medicine as they whip out their medicare cards.

    Hey, grumpy old people: move to Arizona!

    Somehow, Ravi, you seem to be forgetting that these "selfish old farts" and "grumpy old people" who are on or about to go on Medicare have been paying insurance 'premiums' on their healthcare to the government Medicare since it went into effect in 1966.

    The significance of that date and those premiums is that benefits WERE NOTAVAILABLE until reaching age 65. That was the contract, and FYI it is not free. We still pay our Medicare monthly charge, supplement insurance premium, and our Part D drug insurance premium.

    If funding wasn't going to be adequate they had 44 years to make adjustments. By the time people retire and need it they have based their medical situation around the contract, that says "if you pay for something, you are entitled to the benefit promised"
