    I heard Mitch McConnell on CNN this morning raving about how Obama is going to destroy MediCare and how his mother depends on MediCare and the benefits that this government run health plan provides. Yet, on the other hand, he is completely against a government OPTION for healthcare for others who cannot afford insurance. Can someone tell me what the difference is?

    The GOP has always tried to make everyone believe that they're the defenders of MediCare even though it flies in the face of their ideology.

    In my opinion, the bottom line is, they were proven wrong, and their only option was to try and take ownership of it. Everything that has ever gone right in this country is because of the GOP, just ask them. It's an effective political strategy, but not very good for the country.

    Once instituted, you can't climb out from under it. Just like welfare. Once it's there, it's there forever.

    Second difference...ppl who receive medicare are US citizens and either they or their spouses have worked in this country to gain that coverage.

    Not so with the gov't care Obama's providing. It's medicaid, essentially. The people who are going to benefit are 40 year old deadbeats who won't work and illegal aliens, apparently.

    Once again you show that you're really not here to debate...

    A poster provides you with the diferences you asked for and this is your reaction...

    Typical of the rabid left...
