    Justsilvie- I want to thank you for your very thoughtful response to my question.

    And your suggestion that we bring our politicians down from their lofty perches and force them to live on and with the same medical coverages and salaries is inspired.

    I agree with most of it, but how would we privatize Medicare? Wouldn't that just be a charity?

    Well Said, Mr. McGuire! I agree with your criteria. I have been amazed by the number of ridiculous "projects" that Congress will finance that are so useless, other than to be handed out as "lolipops" for special interest groups.
