How utterly wrong this is!
How completely infuriating! The New York Times says the old are being asked to sacrifice health care for the middle-agers and so are the young, who don't really need insurance but will have to get it. This is total hogwash. Or at least it should be. It's the insurance companies, who have run wild with profits on sickness and denying care, who should be sacrificing here AND the doctors who are, for example, prescribing drugs and tests and then profiting by them. How dare the government let these two groups go on amassing their ill-gotten gains while the rest of us pay? Down with capitalism!! Let's try democracy, as Michael Moore puts it, or some kind of democratic socialism as a financial system anyway.
