    Republicans controlling the White House, the Senate and the House, this is their chance to finally reverse the New Deal and the Great Society. This is their chance to shrink government and drown it in the bathtub. They aren’t going to mess it up now by being soft.

    Republicans’ repeal-and-replace plan failed because it wasn’t harsh enough. It didn’t cut Medicaid deep enough. It left too big of a role for government in health care.

    Many Republican leaders, including Vice President Mike Pence, House Speaker Paul Ryan, Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, dozens of senators and hundreds of House members believe the government has no role whatsoever in helping people who can’t help themselves.

    Dismantling the nanny state is the whole point.
    So, what?

    believe it!

    Interesting report on the radio this morning about medication expiration dates.

    Pharmaceutical companies have no reason to test whether their medications remain potent past one to two years, so they don't, and label them as such.

    Hospital pharmacies alone throw out millions of dollars in medication a year.

    A pharmacist found some medications in a closet that dated several decades back and out of curiousity took them to a lab to have them analyzed. Twelve of fourteen compounds in the meds were found to be full potency.

    The government stockpiles large amounts of medications in case of national emergency. They periodically test them and have found they last far longer than the expiration dates. When they do find that, the FDA adjusts the expirations, but there is no comprehensive system to really find out how long medications are potent.

    A lot of healthcare money is simply destroyed every year because of this.
    Maranatha!

    Of course

    By your logic then, you shouldn't raise a fuss if the governnment forces you to spend your evenings reading stories to your neighbor's children
    Right, and when you are off reading to your neighbor's kids, the government will come and take away your guns.

    Same logic at work.

    true, some pills like pain meds and other solid chemicals last longer than 14 years, if kept dry in a dark tempered place.

    The date thing is to get people to purchase new drugs.
    So, what?

    believe it!

    Blame it on the Dems ... we know Trump is ....
    As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes."
    When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics."
    When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty
    -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.

    I saw your ham fisted attempt at parallel the first time. Here's one reason why it's goofy: you wrote it. Here's another: my principle is that I can't be "forced" to do what I would otherwise be willing to do if asked. I wouldn't necessarily be willing to read to a neighbor's kid. Depends on the neighbor, the kid, and what's on my plate. There are any number of reasons why I might decline. So the assumption that I'd be willing isn't necessarily so.

    But the people belly aching about tax dollar sponsored aid for the poor are proclaiming their willingness. That's why they have a problem and that's the nature of my note about the problem in it.
    You aren't what you eat, but you're always what you swallow.

    And "We'll have a good time then, son. You know we'll have a good time then." Or, sure, take all the time you need to try to find an actual answer and by all means cobble whatever time-buying excuse you need in the meanwhile.
