Yesterday, the House Republicans voted to end Medicare as we know it. While this will probably never make it though the Senate or see the President's pen, it has shown more clearly how these people want to put down the middle class.
The members of Congress who voted for this, will probably never be without health care when they are old. They will not be without an income because they are too old, infirm to work, or their job has been shipped overseas. Their pensions will not be at the whims of a crazy Governor. They have completely lost touch with the American People.
Not one Democrat voted for this horrid bill. This day, especially, I am proud to call myself a progressive Democrat.
