    and that 500 billion? Also in Romney plan- and it's from the Medicare Advantage Pubscam....Unbelievable hypocrites

    Ryan's Plan Would Detrimentally Affect Today's Seniors. Conservative media have argued that Ryan's plan has no effect on people 55 or over. In fact, Ryan's budget would raise the cost of health care for today's seniors by forcing them to pay thousands of dollars more for prescription drugs, creating a voucher system that would drive health care costs higher, and sharply cutting Medicaid, a program heavily utilized by seniors. [Media Matters, 8/13/12]

    For more on the Ryan budget's effect on Medicare, click here and here.

    Ryan's Medicaid Cuts Would End Health Insurance Coverage For Millions
    Krugman: "14 Million Is The Minimum Number Of People Who Would Lose Health Insurance" From Ryan's Medicaid Cuts. In his New York Times blog, economist Paul Krugman wrote that Ryan budget's cuts to Medicaid would cause millions to lose health insurance:

    14 million is the minimum number of people who would lose health insurance due to Medicaid cuts -- the Urban Institute, working off the very similar plan Ryan unveiled last year, puts it at between 14 and 27 million people losing Medicaid.

    That's a lot of people -- and a lot of suffering. [The New York Times, The Conscience of a Liberal, 4/6/12]

    CBPP: Ryan's Plan To Convert Medicaid To Block Grants Would Cut The Program By 22 Percent In 10 Years. A post on CBPP's Off the Charts blog stated that the Ryan budget's proposal to restructure Medicaid into block grants "would add tens of millions of Americans to the ranks of the uninsured." The post also said that Ryan's plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion "means that 17 million" more people would not receive health insurance. The post continued:

    The block grant would cut federal Medicaid spending by $810 billion over the next ten years (2013-2022). That would be a cut of about 22 percent compared to current law. (This doesn't count the loss of the large additional funding that states would receive to expand Medicaid under health reform.)

    Bump for dupes...R/R would be a total disaster for the nonrich and the country. See sigpp1 and last...

    I know, let's cut taxes on the bloated rich, destroy Medicare and health reform, raise taxes and fees on the nonrich, let corporate cheats run wild, cut aid to states and localities, raise military spending to more than the rest of the world combined, and worry about the debt in 2035. Absolute idiocy, dupes.

    Unfortunately for YOU--the TRUTH always comes out. Ryan's plan DOES NOT affect anyone that is 55 years and older--including current Medicare seniors. He explains in the video below.



    "When you don't have a record to run on, you need to paint your opponent as someone people need to run from"--Barack Obama Your Mediscare tactics are not working.

    So what? If people are foolish enough to vote for Mittens and the Kochsucker they deserve what they get. This election will be a true test of the intelligence of the American public. Unlike what happened to the employees of the companies Mitten's destroyed with his buyouts..overburdening of debt and draining of retirement accounts with no say in the process... America will not be FORCED to vote against it's best interests. What they WILL have to do is pay attention and think as they are pummelled by a blitz of Koch and Rovian lies in the media. If they cannot sift through the blizzard of shit for the truth they will vote in thier own demise and have no one but themselves to blame for it.
