In Which I Agree With Rand Paul


It is terrifying and could be the end of the world as we know it.  I actually agree with Rand Paul about something – and it is something really, really big.

Can you believe it?

I think he’s copying my idea.

I can’t believe the man is that pragmatic.

I’ve been saying, for years, the best way to do health care is to copy the supplements provided by the AARP and even let them help design the entire program.  I can’t believe Rand Paul would come up with something so reasonable.

Unfortunately, it ain’t gonna happen.

Having had to deal with my parents, the AARP system is incredible.  I wish I had it.  I have nothing.  Once upon a time, I could purchase a group plan via AARP.  It was excellent.  But, thanks to the ACA, I lost it. They had a program where you could purchase insurance, via United, when you turned 50.  It was great insurance, about $140/month, with maybe a $1200 yearly deductible.

I want that option.  Currently, I have none.
