    The government already extorted $55B from its “quasi-independent” corporation to pre-fund all retiree health insurance benefits for 75 years into the future. None of us should have to pay a nickel more; nor should we be forced to accept the sub-standard benefits available under Medicare, as it instantly becomes the primary payer. (Many doctors refuse to accept Medicare patients, simply because of the reduced fee regulations.)

    It seems that medicare integration is finally taken serious by retiree activists. I remind you that I voiced my opposition to medicare integration from the get go. Too bad so many activists were enamored of the current administration to see the danger of medicare integration.

    Guffey et al paid the price for his debacle, although a few fish that should have been replaced escaped that net. They and the new team now huckster this law just as that team huckstered that contract. Remember the rogues who opposed? We were right! Will this team ‘suffer’ the same fate? I lived through the days of John L Lewis, UMWA legendary President, standing up to the US Senate and not backing down or making devil’s deals. If this is the best the new team can do is it time to clear the bench and bring in a new team? We stood tall in 1970 at greater risk than resisting would do now. The entire Federal health system is being put at risk as Postal retirees take the first bullet. The active members have so much at stake too. Where are those voices?
