  1. The problem isn’t Medicare payment rules the problem is.medical & drug research funding… expecting good scientific research and results for human health from profit… That community wellbeing must also make a small number of people very rich or forget it.

      When I went to my local hospital with gas pains from overdosing on echinacea in gelcaps,they not only wouldn’t listen to me, they put me through two “ct scans” costing $18,000, (but didn’t scan the problem area) kept me in the hospital for two days, accused me of Munchhausen syndrome, filled me with fentanyl, even when I hadn’t seen a doctor in decades and hadn’t been in a hospital for 46 yrs, when I had my second child. They played me for all I was worth, almost $40,000; and when a sympathetic nurse stole two bottles of prune juice from the kitchen I checked myself out after a good bowel movement. I reported them to fraud offices who didn’t give a damn. I’m old, but young people I’ve talked to had the same experience there, Dominican Hospital in Santa Cruz, Ca. I would never tell anyone to go there for anything. If the pattern in consistent, that’s where the money is going, elder abuse I call it. I had classic symptom of diverticulitis, took me five minutes on the computer once I got home. Curious, I recreated the whole event by taking more echinacea just to see.

    Democrats need to combine their talents, pick a president, form a cabinet, aligning the various contenders with their best position based on their strengths, combine their efforts to campaign, along with their money. This is a team effort, and would revolutionize the way we run campaigns. We don’t have to give up our favorite runner just because she or he wouldn’t make the best President. We have learned that it’s an impossible job for one person to pull off , male or female. Let them form a cabinet and RUN AS A TEAM. I’ve picked cabinet positions for most of them, what do you think??
