On Wednesday, September 13, 2017, Senator Bernie Sanders (Effing Commie-VT) introduced his new single payer plan with the name “Medicare for All”. Surrounding Bernie as he announced his plan, was the far-left kook fringe of the Democrat Party (yes, I know, redundant). Senator Kamala Harris (Mouthbreather-CA), Senator Elizabeth Warren (Lies All Day, MA), Senator Cory Booker (Self-promoter, NJ) and Senator Richard Blumenthal (Tightest Sphincter ever-CT) all looked as though they would rather be at a Trump rally, but they were there.

Personally, I do not begrudge CEO’s and drug and insurance companies their profits. First of all, to paraphrase B.B.King “They are paying the cost to be the boss.” While I know, personally, some top executives who failed their way to the top, most of the “BSD’s work 24/7/365 and sweat every minute. Healthcare and Insurance companies, while the brunt of our frustrations when we don’t get what we want, innovate and research and lead the world in scientific discovery. You want government to take over? Really?
