20. Could we save another 220 billion in addition to the 80 billion using VA prices...

Show me where we tried to institute the Obama HC plan for negotiating Medicare prices, I have no problem losing, but I need to see where there was an attempt instead of a back room deal.



Can you point to the speeches after the inauguration where an attempt to sell this part of the HC plan was made to the people? That Medicare should be allowed to negotiate prices like the VA does, it was in the Obama/Biden HC plan before the election.

Show me the attempts and speeches after the election instead of just blaming the other side.

From a speech just before the election - "Enough is Enough..."

"And we are tired of watching as year after year, candidates offer up detailed health care plans with great fanfare and promise only to see them crushed under the weight of Washington politics and drug and insurance lobbying once the campaign is over.

That is not who we are, that is not who we have to be, enough is enough, it time for us to change."
