    Are seniors safe under GOP Medicare plan? - Yahoo! News

    And the GOP can't understand why the vast majority Americans are so OPPOSED to this bullshit. I sure hope the GOP continues pushing this garbage. It will send them packing for40 years.

    Forget the fact that retirees are, by and large, the wealthiest demographic in the country.

    Nope...They're old, so that automatically means that they're entirely helpless and are in desperate need of the benevolent patronage of Big Daddy Big Gubmint! :rolleyes:

    Shouldn't Obamacare have fixed that? Isn't "old" a preexisting condition?

    It didn't need to be "fixed". It's why Democrats created the well liked program, "Medicare". The one Republicans are trying to destroy.

    So not only are you saying that allowing denial of coverage based on preexisting conditions should be allowed to continue, but also that medicare should be left as is (ie. insolvent by 2025)?

    Please elaborate, your position intrigues me.
