SOP

As in Standard Operating Procedure…

So who does Trump select to be the point man for his health care proposal to replace the ACA/Obamacare: Richard Lynn Scott, current Senator and former governor of Flordia.

Scott was pressured to resign as chief executive of Columbia/HCA in 1997. During his tenure as chief executive, the company defrauded Medicare, Medicaid and other federal programs. The Department of Justice ultimately fined the company in what was at the time the largest health care fraud settlement in U.S. history.[8] Scott was never charged with any crime.[9] Following his departure from Columbia/HCA, Scott became a venture capitalist and pursued other business interests.

Yes, the same administration that is worried about testing anyone who receives government assistance for drug use has put the biggest “fox” to ever get into the “hen house” of Medicare and Medicaid to create a new health insurance program.

All the best people?

The objective of the conservative health plan is to get (us) oldsters onto their deathbeds as quick and quietly as possible. These vultures want your survivors to pawn and sell everything your estate has in futile (hopefully on their part) attempts to save your dying ass. The GOP acts in many ways as the ERB Therns

I hope to disappoint the GOP by following some of the ideas in this article in the Atlantic: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2014/10/why-i-hope-to-die-at-75/379329/ Unfortunately the Author does not offer any information on how to deal with a wife with different ideas. (My wife should outlive me by 20 years; all the women in her family lived well into their 90’s.)

Their real goal is not to pay back all of the money they borrowed from the Social Security/Medicare Trust Fund. They keep giving tax cuts and then complaining that the reason deficits are rising is all of the Boomers want to get the proceeds of the Social Security/Medicare insurance that they have been paying for their entire working lives.

The GOP want to design a system that pushes all of the resources to the top 1% because that’s where they want to live, and to hell with the rest of us. No actual welfare queen could ever rip the government off for the tens to hundreds of millions of tax dollars that Columbia/HCA ripped off while Rick Scott was CEO. Defrauding tax payers is what Scott is best at doing.
