    Romney-Ryan plan destroy's Medicare... and seniors quality of life and their children's lives who end up paying for their parents healthcare via direct payments to/for their parents, paying health insurance premiums for their parents and/or increased taxes and/or increased health insurance premiums to pay for higher costing mandatory emergency care that Reagan signed into law --- Republicans are a weird group, their ODS causes them to step over a dollar to pick up a dime -pewsh!-




    Stumping in Florida today, Mitt Romney charged President Obama’s Affordable Care Act will “cut more than $700 billion” out of Medicare.

    What Romney didn’t say was that his running-mate’s budget — approved by House Republicans and by Romney himself — would cut Medicare by the same amount.The big difference, though, is the Affordable Care Act achieves these savings by reducing Medicare payments to drug companies, hospitals, and other providers rather than cutting payments to Medicare beneficiaries.

    The Romney-Ryan plan, by contrast, achieves its savings by turning Medicare into a voucher whose value doesn’t keep up with expected increases in healthcare costs — thereby shifting the burden onto Medicare beneficiaries, who will have to pay an average of $6,500 a year more for their Medicare insurance, according an analysis of the Republican plan by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office.

    The Romney-Ryan plan, shifts the burden onto Medicare beneficiaries!

    As I recall, the Ryan plan would destroy medicare completely in 30 years. Medicare will go bankrupt and be over under democrats in 14 years.

    Medicare Vouchers will never get out of the house because no PHCP would even consider taking a voucher to insure a senior with many illness. Take me for instance. No PHCP in this country would even take an application from me. PHCP cannot operate without making a profit. And with vouchers the profits would come out of seniors pockets. Medicare Vouchers are DOA

    Fucking Liberals need to arm themselves with some basic facts (numb-nut bitches) --

    Key Elements of Mitt’s Plan

    •Nothing changes for current seniors or those nearing retirement
    •Medicare is reformed as a premium support system, meaning that existing spending is repackaged as a fixed-amount benefit to each senior that he or she can use to purchase an insurance plan
    •All insurance plans must offer coverage at least comparable to what Medicare provides today
    •If seniors choose more expensive plans, they will have to pay the difference between the support amount and the premium price; if they choose less expensive plans, they can use any leftover support to pay other medical expenses like co-pays and deductibles
    •“Traditional” fee-for-service Medicare will be offered by the government as an insurance plan, meaning that seniors can purchase that form of coverage if they prefer it; however, if it costs the government more to provide that service than it costs private plans to offer their versions, then the premiums charged by the government will have to be higher and seniors will have to pay the difference to enroll in the traditional Medicare option
    •Lower income seniors will receive more generous support to ensure that they can afford coverage; wealthier seniors will receive less support
    •Competition among plans to provide high quality service while charging low premiums will hold costs down while also improving the quality of coverage enjoyed by seniors

    Nah, because democrats think they can just keep raising taxes at all levels, and money will magically appear to solve all the worlds problems. Also its always "someone else" who ends up paying for it.

    The one point republicans need to hammer home is that this is a phased transfer. I know predicting the possible failure of ones own plan doesnt make sense, but they need to remind people that if the concept here doesnt work, the politicans in power can always just re-start the old version of medicare.

    If the above is such a doom scenairo as democrats keep saying, wouldnt they then be voted into power on a wave of anger about the demise of medicare, and would be able to vote it back in?

    Something has to be done.

    Let's see if I have the obamaplan correct.

    The Romney/Ryan plan will destroy medicare in 30 years. obama looting medicare out of 716 billion dollars today helps medicare.

    Is that it?

    Technically its not looting medicare, its looting the doctors who provide the services. Since geriatric specialists rely so heavily on medicare for thier income, the government figures they just have to sit there and suck it up.

    Progressive dont want anyone saving medicare.......Or even trying....It would mean no need for single pay and the greedy fucks dont want to pay for anything. Let not forget it was Obama that actually cut medicare 750,000,000,000 dollars.
