At this point I even think maybe AARP was right to support Medicare Part D, and that Kristy and I were wrong. The difference is that now I am using it myself, and so the donut hole, which seems a terrible idea on paper, in actual life is a reminder that I have been receiving assistance for the first half of the year, which I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise.
The bad news, though only slightly bad, is she has a basal cell carcinoma on the nose, to be removed next week. I’m not sure that isn’t synonymous with saying ‘I live somewhere along a path between Miami and San Diego’. This is in addition to a melanoma gotten early a couple of years back.
Revision: Nix that, we were wrong to oppose Part D, and when I said so Kristy paused and then nodded.
And also I just turned the sound back up after discussing family concerns with Kristy, heard Nicole Sandler say that her biggest problem with the bill is who gets the money. As I have observed, the main motivation for liberal opposition is hatred and a desire for retribution – and thus isn’t really what I would call ‘liberal’ in spirit.
