We know that given just about any problem, the wise commenters on this here website can probably solve it. Today, in response to the Republican idea to privatize Medicare, a few people went and solved the health care problem altogether. One solution? Magical thinking!

From our friend Belkin:

I have a better (and cheaper) idea: Why don't we close our eyes and cover our ears and pretend than anyone who isn't a millionaire, doesn't exist!

Easy, huh? La la la la la, everyone lives in a gated community and has trust funds. Nobody is poor or middle class! Therefore we have no need for safety nets!

You can thank me by coming to my pool party made out of solid gold. Don't have one? Course you do.

Wow, that is some seriously sound economic theory. See, Republicans, The Secret will save us all!
