Sleepy Ronnie in the Cabinet gave us supply side economics It was for the benefit of increasing salaries of fat pigs in the board rooms by over 1000%, busting unions and paying as little as possible to the people doing the work in this nation.
It was the idiot, Shrub, with words to validate supply-side economics, who said, at the turn of the Millennium, “what’s good for business is good for America.” Then with his political party gave us privatized Medicare in order to prop up supply side economics even further.
This was done while the Shrub and all those in Congress and in the government could get a lifetime benefit for healthcare which the rest of us “little people” don’t get, at least as good as those with “divine rights.” Remember, we are just “little people” and only numbers, not worth one damn except as chopped liver.
With this, then, we have this wonderful supply-side economics in the form of privatized Medicare.
When the glucose meter is working fine and is not broken, we face the “preferred” choice of supply-side privatized Medicare. The meter was not broken, so it did not need fixing. We, in America, often said, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” With supply-side economics, that is apparently no longer true. More like, if the big fat pig at the top can line his/her pockets by being paid off by manufacturers of meters (and other medical equipment), such as this one, we waste the money, whether the old one works or not. All for the sake of us “little people” in the senior citizens group.
No wonder we in America pay more for healthcare than those in Canada with their “socialized” system. We pay nearly twice as much asws our neighbors to the north. We pay and the big fat pigs line their pockets.
On top of it all, we in America have a lower longevity rate than our neighbors to the north with their “socialized” medicine. All for the big fat pigs with hedge funds and sitting at the heads of many corporations, on their damn fat asses like lazy bums in board rooms. While WE THE PEOPLE are treated like shit with this wasted money.
Let us give thanks to the demagogues with divine rights, such as charismatic Sleepy Ronnie in the Cabinet from long ago.
And we live happily ever after.
