Quote of the Day, from Senator Al Franken (D-Snark).
So with spending $2 billion on prevention, they're predicting medical costs of $55 billion for seniors, seems like a no-brainer to increase the prevention, no?
But No, says Spawn of Ron (R- Atlas Shrugged) Paul, he says we should privatize Meals on Wheels, and gouge those destitute starving seniors. Prevention is bad, sez he, and
“The idea or notion that spending money in Washington somehow is saving money really flies past most of the taxpayers”.
Bernie Sanders lit into him with a tractor beam from reality. (One thing he didn't say was that none of that junk mail—screaming how we can't afford not to spend money—apparently ever make it to planet AynRondema)
But little Ronnie got all pissy:
"How much money should we give you in order to save money? If we spend federal money to save money, where is the limit? I think we could reach a point of absurdity.”
That was when Al Franken turned on his mic and won one interwebs:
“I think you just did.”
