Who wants to cut $716 billion from Medicare

Just to set the record straight, The President’s plan will, in fact , cut about $716 billion from Medicare. It will cut the money from the fraud being perpetrated by medical professionals, pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturing companies; not from the elderly as the Republicans would have you believe.
As a matter of fact, Paul Ryan’s plan would also cut the same $716 billion from the same sources as the president’s plan. But Republicans  have neglected to include that small but important fact in any of their campaign attacks.
I am just so confused that people finding out that a political party has played you with such arrogance would still vote for those who did it.
What does loyalty to a group that is jerking you around with lies and half truths say about those who don’t seem to care?



  1. I think it’s because they really don’t care. Some are even aware and don’t care. I think it has to do with a little known “could be” fact. Most of the people for Mitt adMit it with a touch of shame in their voice. Bet you thought I was going to say some-thing like are 30 to 50 years old. Number one reason when backed into a conner is “I want to keep more of my money”. Instead of more they should opt for longer. Bet you didn’t know that 83% of them really think they will pay a great deal less in taxes with Mitt. All these facts are correct in— My world—- anyways. And they don’t seem to care where the money is going to! That would be 100%

    • You are exactly right, and the sad part is, only if they are extremely rich will they keep more of their money. Those of us in the real world are going to pay more in taxes and the cost of living will skyrocket again, most middle class people will continue to pay more for health care, corporations will still send the jobs overseas, and we will find another pplce to be at war so we can sell the guns and other weapons we manufacture.. This trickle down garbage has never worked.
