    This article certainly needs to be BROADCAST far and wide. Elizabeth Warren has been swayed?
    I'm wearing a pair of very comfy orthopedic shoes, a medical device made for diabetics, Rx-prescribed by my doctor, mostly paid for by taxpayers via Medicare. My co-pay was $50, out of the $505.00 total cost for the shoes. Foot care is very important for diabetics. When I started wearing this make and style of Rx-shoes in 2004, made by the same company, the cost was almost $200.00 with no co-pay. This company, and Big Pharma corporations in general, have made out like bandits; first, Rx prices jumped via the Bush/Cheney Medicare Part 'D' Prescription Drug Plan, then they rose as part of the Obamacare deal. Not a good deal for taxpayers, like the many members of my family. Not only should this tax be reinstated, it should be doubled!

    "Don't they mean 'Idiot-Obama's' Recklesness!!! You don't need wisdom when dealing with an Idiot like Obama. Quote: “North Korea is not a paper tiger so it wouldn't be smart to dismiss its provocative behavior as pure bluster. What's not clear right now is how much risk Kim Jong Un is willing to run to show the world and domestic elites that he's a tough guy,” said the official, who asked not to be named. “His inexperience is certain - his wisdom is still very much in question.” Unquote "I told you yesterday, you do not play War-Games with countries you know nothing about, and Idiot Obama know nothing Period!!!!
