A reader emailed a good point. I’ve been paying into Medicare for three decades now, and the GOP has decided to basically shitcan the program for anyone under 55. Fine, how can I expect my refund for the tens of thousands I’ve paid in to Medicare to be reimbursed? Will Paul Ryan and friends just have the treasury cut me a large check? Will they just give me a credit and I won’t have to pay any taxes for a couple years? Will they send me a couple large every year until we are even?
Or is this my “shared sacrifice,” and I’ll be told to eat a bag of salty dicks while they cut taxes for the Koch brothers and the rest of their fat cat donors and big business?
