    There was a wonderful moment in Claire McCaskill's town hall meeting. She asked the crowd, "How many of you are on Medicare?" About half the crowd raised their hands. Then she asked, "How many of you want to give it up?"

    Nobody raised their hand.

    Of course they didn't. In ten years Medicare will be belly up and it'll end for them then. If they're not dead yet.

    The usually scare tactics.

    Medicare will not be bankrupt by 2019.

    We will reform healthcare, reduce the cost, and probably raise taxes or reallocate resources to pay for it.

    I am really getting tired of these lies on behalf of the evil insurance companies.

    Raise taxes? But didn't Obama promise not to do that?

    Why should I pay more in taxes so you can get free health care? Get a job, slacker.

    But you haven't gotten tired of being clueless.

    Even now the Democrats at Obama's insistence are stripping money from Medicare and trying to strip even more. Go ahead Chris explain to us how solvent Medicare is, how it has kept costs down and provided state of the art coverage for the people covered by it.

    I doubt seriously if you make enough money to have your taxes raised.

    That's not the point. I don't see why anyone should have their taxes raised to pay for someone else's health care.
