Thanks, Tweety ... I was wondering when someone would point that out. I've seen so many comments here about "those people" sucking at the government teat.
I've never seen them acknowledge that our paychecks are, in large part, expressed from the same organ. But, of course ... "government can't create jobs". So ... cutting or eliminating spending should have no effect on wages and unemployment, right?
I wonder if, in all this belt-tightening, the prescription drug benefit will be modified to allow Medicare to negotiate prices.
