Keep the sabbath day holy.

I guess that works if it's your surrogates who are doing the rotten deeds for you on that day.

If Romney's plan is so great at saving money and improving Medicare, he wouldn't deny his changes to people over 55. Where is the logic in that? Nowhere thank you. He doesn't want people older than 55 to save money? pffffffff.

Romney has no plan except privatize everything under the sun assuring us that all the problems of the past will magically improve despite the fact it's not working now.

Medicare has an overhead of 4% while the private industry has overheads and profits of 20% or greater. Rediculous.

LIsten, I actually like the notion of vouchers. But...

I don't understand how Romeny thinks competition will solve the problem here. One of Romney's biggest complaints about medicare changes proposed by Obama is that it will come on the backs of doctors, and they in turn will stop seeing medicare patients because they can't make money.

Here is the deal. Romeny's plan for competition to drive cost out of the system. Where will that cost come from? It will come out of the doctors pockets. They are the last stop on the medical services supply chain. These companies that will be getting Romney vouchers will want to protect their margins, and will do so by lowering rates to doctors.

The problem is we do need to drive cost out of the system. Romney's plan is to drive it out at point of delivery through competition. That will do so only to a very limited extent. Real cost need to be addressed. Delivery needs to be rethought.

Oh, and wouldn't it be nice if we all could have a day off from politics? Just one day. No political adds. No calls. No people calling the other a lier. Just one day without either side misrepresenting what the other said.

Just one day a week would be ever so nice.

Mitt Romney goes to church every Sunday all the time.

BHO goes to church for the photo op during campaigns only for show.
