Paul Craig Roberts tells it like is. We are all enslaved. How lucky we are to be so beloved by our Great Democratic Government. Indeed, the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) has issued an all points bulletin urging its members to wake up and to urge their US Senators “to oppose the American Health Care Act passed by the House. This harmful bill gives billions of dollars to special interests while sticking ordinary Americans with huge premium hikes. It includes an age tax that would force older Americans to pay thousands of dollars more for their health insurance. it weakens Medicare and removes protections for people with pre-existing conditions." Therfore it is urged that you represent your own interests—not those of the drug and insurance companies.
