    Sorry bout that,


    1. I'm 53, and I don't like being squeezed out of Medicare, before I can get it.
    2. Why should I have to get screwed on this?
    3. While the medical industry lives in modern day castles, I have to get kicked out of the Medicare plan.
    4. Theres the problem, the medical industry charges *TOO* much!
    5. Top to bottom anything that has to do with the medical industry is over priced, insurance companies too.
    6. Lets fix that!
    7. LINK:http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/abc-news-exclusive-rep-ryan-stands-ground-medicare/story?id=13689568


    "Rep. Paul Ryan is doubling down. In the wake of Tuesday's stunning Republican defeat in New York special Congressional election, the Republican House Budget Chairman says he is determined to fight for his Medicare plan even if it ruins his political career. "

    You got sold out, thrown under the bus by the Republican leadership claiming to look out for your interests.

    The only surprise is that Republicans are surprised.

    Yup he did. Around 500 Billion.

    Talk about hypocrisy. Here they are lambasting Ryans plan while conveniently ignoring that measly 500 Billion they are stripping out of Medicare to fund their pet project.

    Of course he isn't trying to throw grandma off a cliff. Only the Reps are trying to do that.

    Whats a measly 500 billion stripped out of Medicare??

    I'm sure the elderly will appreciate his concern for them.

    Wednesday, June 29, 2011 – When unveiling a proposal to reform Medicare alongside Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), Senator Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) warned that the entitlement program will eventually “go broke” and lead to a “fiscal disaster” for the United States.

    Sounds like you've made the error of not being two years older. Rookie mistake.

    No Medicare for you!

    Gary Johnson says give Medicare to the state and make the federal government solvent.

    Let's have 50 incubators rather than a long arm of the government.

    I like this idea.

    Funny how they complain that Obama doesn't make cuts, then when he finds some savings, they attack him for it. Cute. Anyway ...

    Ford the record, he ended Medicare Advantage which was basically taxpayer money going to insurance companies and letting those companies take care of seniors. Oh, and the insurance company apparently needed a premium of 14% on top of regular costs. Yay for efficiency. Obama stopped all that and rolled many of the services into regular Medicare, so now regular Medicare actually provides more benefits to seniors than before.
