I know I haven’t been posting lately compared to my DrugMonkey and Angriest counterparts. Don’t feel like getting into politics here and I dont like to rehash stuff (too much). Had to reprime the angry-reserves. 🙂
People always sing to me the ‘I’m on a fixed income” blues when they are paying their Medicare Part-D $3.10 copays for their $200 Nexium Rx. Oh, how soon these idiots forget what life was like before Medicare Part-D took effect. Did they somehow forget paying full price out of pocket for their medications? Why is now $3.10 so much of a financial drain on their “fixed income” when just 4 years ago they were paying 10x that amount with a smile on their face. I really do get a huge hard-on when I bring up how much they were paying before Part-D and how they are only paying $3.10 (which makes them feel like huge ungrateful douches).
Medicare Part D has spoiled seniors, plain and simple. They are so hung up on their “fixed income” that they have completely lost sight that the people who are footing the bill for their expensive medications are the same people who will never ever see a dime of the money that they contributed to the system. They also fail to see how Medicare is pretty much socialized medicine for people over 65, and we can see how well THATS going. Medicare recipients complaining how we should have socialized medicine in this country just makes my irony meter fly off of the chart.
What do you expect from old people other than cow eyes, the same question asked every week, and bitching about $3.10 copays.
