A Sickly TGIF

You might think I'm exaggerating but I'm not. Reading this morning's headlines made me feel sick.

We torture people and we kidnap and export civilians of our own and other nations to countries that torture them. Why is this not a bigger scandal? Why are there not howls of outrage coming from every part of this country?

The poorly designed Medicare drug "benefit", actually designed as a give-away to pharmaceutical companies, that didn't allow for negotiating discounts on drug prices, originally advertised at $400B and raised to $500+B a couple of months later is now revealed to have a price tag of over a trillion. And yet, some people insist upon demanding that we believe this Administration's version of the numbers surrounding Social Security?

To soothe the pain, some classic Achenbach.
