AARP Stupidity

I just had the misfortune of watching an AARP commercial for getting a “prescription drug benefit” as part of Medicare.  Some woman was having a “summit” in her house and made it seem as if everyone agrees that this is a good idea. 

My immediate thought, which I yelled back at the TV (TV is really bad for my blood pressure), was “Who the hell do you think you are that I have to pay for your drugs?”  It really pisses me off that some people feel that they are entitled to get the rest of us to pay for their drugs.  It’s irresponsible and it smacks of socialism.  If the program were self-supporting through premiums, I wouldn’t care.  But they’re asking for billions of dollars from the rest of us, which is simply unacceptable.
