Romney's plan to hurt seniors

Voucher plan could cost future seniors

They're not talking about now but later. But aren't many of those future senior citizens the same people who are hurting now due to job loss? So what's the difference? Wink

There's no winners in this upcoming election

We just need to keep from voting for the biggest Loser. Nobody is baking more pies, just fighting over the slices that's already been baked.

Romney's take on it....

"Only one candidate in this race has robbed today's Medicare of $716 billion to pay for Obamacare - Barack Obama. He has done nothing to reform Medicare for the long haul and prevent it from going bankrupt, and on his watch family health care premiums have increased by nearly $2,500. ."

In 2010, Obama agreed with Ryan that Medicare is and will go bankrupt if drastic measures are not taken.

That "He cut Medicare by $700 billion" line....

.....is simply not true. That's been pointed out to both Romney and Ryan but they keep repeating it.

Forbes' take on it, it simply is true...........

Thank goodness I'll turn 65 after 2023

Otherwise, I'd be stuck with that extra cost.

... oh wait.

Shouldn't be a problem

Just don't sign up for the voucher option. Keep the old plan if it's still there.

And as Paul Harvey would have put it, "Just so you won't run out of things to worry about", neither Obama nor Romney will be a threat. You'll have someone else to fret over by then. Eminent doom and gloom will always be in the forecast as election season approaches. Happy
