When the Republicans talk about “Affordable Heathcare,” one of the options they tout is “Repeal and Replace.” Given their past history, a Republican “Replace” option concerns me more than anything else.

Medicare is required by Congress to accept the pharmaceutical companies’ prices without comparison or negotiation, add 6 percent to it, and pay it. As a perpetual gift to the pharmaceutical companies, when Part D of Medicare was passed in 2003, Congress prohibited Medicare from negotiating altogether. There were some reciprocal gifts from the pharmaceutical companies to the cooperating Congressmen, as might be expected.

Why is it that you can seldom enter/exit the Gilbert Library without being asked to either sign a petition or donate money to the animal shelter. It becomes very annoying to constantly be asked for money (donations), when both entering and exiting the library. In my opinion, it takes away much of the joy of visiting our great library.
