Republicans facing tough questions over Medicare overhaul in budget plan: They damn well better be stopped or average and poor Americans are done

Republicans facing tough questions over Medicare overhaul in budget plan They should because they have long sought to end it. Beware! We really have to do something here but the super wealthy Republicans keep giving tax cuts too and are supposedly off the table must do their share too!

House Republicans face backlash at home over budget plan

Is Paul Ryan's Medicare Proposal Like Obama's Health Care Plan? Seems like the same game Republicans just changed the names. Knowing their long ultimate plan for social security Medicaid and medicare I am still very concerned this would be step one in ending it all.

GOP planning 1 trillion slash to Medicaid and Medicare

GOP 2012 budget to make $4 trillion-plus in cuts All on the backs of the poor and needy!

This is scary because of America's Impending Master Class Dictatorship

Frightening but you can not deny this reality! We are in serious trouble and as I have pointed out for years it was done on purpose and right under our unsuspecting noses! Our real debt including Debt and unfunded liabilities is $120 trillion! Wrap your mind around that!

They always go after the poor and the needy and our so called unfunded liabilities. The Political Wisdom on Social Security is Bunk

The "Unfunded Liabilities" Ruse: Under Bush the mainstream media had been parroting claims that the federal government, particularly the Social Security and Medicare programs, have dozens of trillions of dollars in "unfunded liabilities." For example, USA Today ran a long feature in early October 2004 that proclaimed that "the long-term economic health of the United States is threatened by $53 trillion in government debts and liabilities that start to come due in four years." Many other articles, news reports, and commentary have included comparable numbers that make the fiscal future look not just frightening but entirely unmanageable. Just put Bush's trillions in there and have a real hemorrhage.

These claims appear aimed at scaring us into making radical changes in our social insurance system for old people. But whatever the motivation, how scared should we be? What is true and what is phony about the alarms that fiscal disaster is looming just ahead? Unfunded Liabilities Ruse Social Security crisis heralded by Republicans for political gain, is it a crisis or a ruse? Imagine if we privatized it when Bush wanted to?

It is a frightening thought, discontinuing social security or even cutting social security, Medicaid, and Medicare. It is all millions have. I remember Romney when stumping for McCain saying it should be discontinued and the countries big enemy was the Democrats and their effort to take care of the elderly and the needy. Bush spent years cutting "unfunded liabilities" and trying to wipe out President Roosevelt's legacy. If the Republican's get back in they will do just that. Social Security turned 75, but will it see 75 more? Not if the Republicans have anything to say about it!

All Democrats and all independents better make sure they come out in 2012 to get President Obama reelected, our future depends on it. If Republicans get back it the White House they are going to finish off average Americans and Bush's mis-agenda of destruction. Republicans goal is to wipe out FDR's legacy and destroy every single Democrat accomplishment ever not just Obama's.

If you look at their plan it would bite them in the ass in the end. When the middle and lower class would be forced to use the emergency room instead of a government funded doctor. The unpaid for bills would go to the taxpayer. Right now Medicare costs 2.5 trillion each year. Imagine the bill when seniors would be forced into expensive emergency care and what that would do to the deficit.
People especially seniors are starting to realize their little plan and aren't to happy with it. I think we'll be seeing a republican purge come next election season. Even the tea baggers don't like these ideas.

I think it is going to bite them in the ass and it has started. I went to the ER after almost amputating my thumb and they bragged that my wait was only 6 hours. I though it was hell and that was a good day.

They ended up sewing me with no anesthetic, They just said it won't take long. They said a 10 hour wait is the average in the area.

That is fff'd up! That is because of precisely what you are saying and this is the home of Romney care. Can you imagine if we had a real crisis. We would be screwed!
