When Doves Cry: GOP fights to save Medicare from Democratic cuts…

Yes we ARE through the looking glass. I don’t care WHO is standing up for Medicare as long as someone is standing tall dammit.

MAC has an amendment to stop the Medicare cuts. The Democrats plan to kill it. He is on Kudlow now, we will post it as soon as the video comes up. He wants Medicare left intact and a payroll tax cut!!  It is 500billion to start, that kind of cutting is going to HURT.

I am unwilling to throw the Baby Boomers under the bus to give 15 million people crappy coverage. The other 15 million can damn well take their axx to the Medicaid line like they do for Food Stamps and other assistance. I have been there, they don’t bite people. God helps those who help themselves.  Go sign up for the safety net that is available if you and your family need it.

Would I like to expand coverage? LOVE TO! Did I plan to do so under HRC? Damn yes BEFORE THE ECONOMIC MELTDOWN AND LOSS OF TRILLIONS AND THE HUGE GAPING MAW OF THE DEFICIT ! DOOM I SAY DEFICIT DOOM!!!

okay, back to the GOP fighting for Medicare:

As it stands, the Democrats’ bill will cut at least $450 BILLION from Medicare in order to pay for their new government-run health care system. December 2, 2009.

  1. Health care -- how do we move forward replied:

    It appears that the Democrats are bent on legislation at any cost. At least $2.5 trillion and perhaps as much as $6 trillion over ten years of our hard earned money. The mentality in Washington is that there is a little bit of money for lots of different groups so that they can buy support and votes for this bill. http://www.ilovebenefits.wordpress.com
