Yes. I guess this MO works with their undiscerning base, but it is so ransparently hateful, destructive, hollow and goofy to the rest of us.
You are, sadly, misinformed on many topics.
Capitalism shoots itself in the foot, every once in awhile, and needs government
to step in and save it. Great economic thinkers understand this perfectly well, but you don't seem to have a clue, D.S.
Listening to Santorum yesterday, I noticed that the things he derided as bad in the PPACA
are inherent in extant HMOs.
Government workers are the most efficient workers in America.
Government workers pay huge sums of taxes.
Government workers work for a pittance, for 30-40 years, in exchange for a paltry pension and
healthcare which is being wiped out for them.
Prop 13 destroyed America. Republican ideas and policies are destructiv for the 99%.
Here we are.
The healthcare policy is good and will be an improvement for the U.S. Health System.
Government hired a private corporation to do a job and they screwed up royally. So much for Republican myths about the efficacy of business handling things.
Sorry, V. I've tried to find the reference again, but can't. At the time, I was trolling the internet and came across it. The only thing said was that the dividend rate might need to be cut in two years. No reason given. The writeup ran around May - July of 2011. Then, I assumed the 'two years' might be when interested rates began to rise which looked as if it might happen in mid-to fall of 2013.
