I noticed yesterday that both David Shuster and I believe Rachel Maddow too were quite amused that the man was a Medicare recipient. Yeah, 65 years old, stands to reason. He has paid a part of his salary for his entire working life (by law) into Medicare, and his employer contributed an equal amount, so he SHOULD have Medicare. That doesn’t mean he wants what is now designed for older Americans to take over the whole system, especially since it is widely believed that Medicare is going Broke. That makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it, if something is unsustainable, make it 500 times bigger.
But I guess that makes it okay for the Moveon.org guy to bite off his finger? The stinking hypocrital media. Can you see it if it had been the other way around? What if a member of the “mob” had done the biting? I wouldn’t want to see it.
