    “We had to destroy the program in order to save it.” The alternative, of course, is that people might have to pay higher taxes; which means that it’s out of the question for the GOP even though Medicare saves America billions of dollars compared to private-sector insurance.

    I’m not senile, but I see what’s going on. I’ll be sending this one to my conservative Mom just to show her what she voted for. (She has already done so via Absentee Ballot.)
    .
    Should make for some interesting arguments…. (We sometimes discuss things heatedly for fun, but Politics is one subject that’s a guaranteed argument.)

    Yeah, the Dems are doing their usual bit of scaring seniors into thinking the GOP is out to get /em…..

    I think it’s amusing that Ryan was selected as VP candidate for his supposed expertise on budgetary issues — he had actually produced a proposed budget.
    -
    After he was selected, both Willard and Ryan asserted that Ryan’s budget would NOT be used because Willard was at the top of the ticket and HIS budget would be the one used.
    -
    Of course, Willard did not and does not have a proposed budget.
    -
    If Willard/Ryan’s Medicare plans are so great, why are over 55s exempted?
    -

    Would ANYBODY over 55 vote for Ryan’s Medicare proposal?

    The plan says those not yet 55 will have a CHOICE. And reason would suggest that if enough people CHOOSE Medicare, it’ll probably stay around.
    The lib’s in the media don’t want to talk about the truth, cuz if they did it would lend, well, credence to it for their followers, and they wouldn’t keep Democrats in power.
    Followers, I like that, good word for them.

    @sclark55

    ^If that ‘choice’ is so great, why not ‘offer’ it to the over 55s?

    You’re not a Fox ‘News’ viewer, by any chance?

    You are funny. Mom is a conservative Republican who gets her news from FoxNews…. which is a cursed network.
