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:

Jon Kyl, U.S. Senate Republican Whip, speaking on the Senate floor in favor of the McCain Amendment that would prevent the cuts in Medicare outlined in the Senate ObamaCare bill. 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.

Update: GOP proposes Seniors Health Care Bill of Rights…

An update from Ed at HotAir in which the govt run VA incorrectly notifies 1200 vets that they have a terminal, incurable illness.  Yeah give the govt the power to make decisions on health care treatments and give them all our medical records. What could possibly go wrong? (Disclaimer my grandmother died of ALS, it is a terrible disease that literally strikes terror when you hear the diagnosis )

Righteous, take it to the net..

…Republicans want reform that should, first, do no harm, especially to our seniors. That is why Republicans support a Seniors’ Health Care Bill of Rights, which we are introducing today, to ensure that our greatest generation will receive access to quality health care. We also believe that any health-care reform should be fully paid for, but not funded on the backs of our nation’s senior citizens.

First, we need to protect Medicare and not cut it in the name of “health-insurance reform….

Second, we need to prohibit government from getting between seniors and their doctors….

Third, we need to outlaw any effort to ration health care based on age…

Fourth, we need to prevent government from dictating the terms of end-of-life care…

Finally, we need to protect our veterans by preserving Tricare and other benefit programs for military families….

IMO the best thing Steele has done since taking the chair….Please spread this around to all your loved ones…

The irony is of course the Dead performed for TOTUS and it is their gen of Baby Boomers who will get care rationed…witness the VA Your Life, Your Choices aka ‘they shoot horses dont they’ pamphlet…
