    How can this be? There were a multitude of attack ads sponsored by the GOP and their conservative attack groups during the Healthcare debate, scaring the shit out of seniors by telling them that "Obamacare" would make drastic cuts to MediCare. Why is it now OK to eliminate MediCare?

    go to you tube,, find the hearing in which Sebilius explains the theft of 960 billion, not used to pay down debt but to fund the 30 million individuals who were un insured. you did that off the backs of seniors so don't fearmonger now.. instead cry us a river.

    How about waiting until they actually review tha plan?



    And since the plan doesn't affect those over 55 your post is an outright lie.

    the part she leaves out is that what the dimmies are doing fucks up the whole damn country and instead of looking for solutions they want to demogouge.. Saul Alinsky people do that.

    Are you talking about the cost savings in the ACA that equaled that amount? You'll have to be a little less vague with your claims.
