Quick Thought

I heard on the radio this morning that Nancy Pelosi wants new legislation put into place that will require the government to negotiate better drug prices for Medicare recipients. Pardon me a second, but it isn't a negotiation if the government demands lower prices! It's equivalent, literally and morally, to a thug holding you up for your wallet. If he only takes SOME of the money instead of ALL of the money and lets you keep your drivers' license and credit cards, that doesn't make it any more right.

You don't do politics often, but when you do, you hit the nail on the head.

Thanks. I usually only do politics when I hear or read something that particularly annoys me, is why. That'd be a lot more if I didn't avoid most news outlets like the plague.
