Yes, he'll embrace Paul Ryan's viciously cruel plan to replace Medicare with vouchers that will pay less than half of what the elderly have been receiving via Medicare. Elderly Americans will be expected to buy insurance on the private market (!!), even though they are in many ways the worst risks for insurers. Yes, you'd have 80 year-olds negotiating with a health insurance company, begging them for coverage.
DON'T LET THE REPUBLICANS GET AWAY WITH THE UTTER, OUT-AND-OUT DAMNED LIE THAT THIS MEASURE IS INTENDED TO "SAVE" MEDICARE. IT IS INTENDED TO DESTROY MEDICARE, WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT IS DESIGNED TO DO.
We're talking about a "system" that will condemn countless older Americans to an early death. We're talking about the REAL death panels here--the insurance companies that turn down the elderly, because the insurance companies would go bankrupt trying to provide for them. We're talking about destroying one of the most effective government programs in history.
People, WAKE UP. The Republican Right-Wing fanatics and ideological lunatics want to destroy Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid because they show the entire conservative argument--the contention that government is the problem--is a lie. They want to destroy these programs not because they've failed.
They want to destroy them because they work.
