No. of Recommendations: 5

I'm not going to agree with you nor disagree with you about whether it was a "necessary comparomise" (I have my views, but I'm not sure they belong here) and that wasn't the issue in any case: the issue was, do the American people have a right to be unhappy about something with prescription: yes, they do have a right not to like the fact that
their government ruled out any negotiating for the best price, even if you (wish to) believe it was "unavoidable".

Seattle Pioneer, I notice not a single person mentioned the word Republican before you, why make this into a fight over "who is worse, the Democrats in 1965 or undid in 1985, or what the Republicans did (with enough support from Democrats) coming into effect in 2006. It's not just the fact that two wrongs don't make a right, it's the very partisan tone of your posts. Did a single person say a single word on this board saying "The Democrats are 100% innocent"? No, no such statement was made. There is the Political Asylum board if you insist on "but the Democrats are worse" posts.

If this keeps up I'm taking a vacation from this board, as I'd hate to resort to ignoring individuals' posts, though I'd do it as a last resort. I (and everyone else here so far) has refrained from "The Republicans are worse" posts here, you can refrain maybe from "The Democrats are evil/worse/worst" posts perhaps...? And we can talk about what retirees need (or what we think retirees deserve) without getting into partisan battles about which half of our wonderful (not!) political elite system is better/worse..? I think that would be more productive, constructive, and helpful to all in Retire Well on Less.
