    If repealed, I’m sure they will attack this with the same gusto they have trying to create jobs.

    Call a Medicare “voucher” what it is– a slap in the face to a successful program that millions have relied on for decades, and a bigger slap in the face to the millions who are not yet there but are counting on it. Of course, count on these spinless slimes to ‘exempt’ the current voting generation about to become Medicare-eligible so that only the younger generations get screwed.

    And why? So we can make permanent an absurdly low 15% cap on things like capital gains or ‘carried interest’ so that fat cats like Romney can grow their trust funds even bigger and guarantee that all of their progeny will be born with silver spoons for generations to come.

      I would like to start by saying that we desperately need reform and I realize that any money of mine going to Medicare will never benefit me (we will have changed it or it will have imploded by then). There are some flaws to your argument though. If I put in a dollar at age 18, how much is that dollar worth when I am 70? Second, there are plenty of people who pay all their lives and never actually receive a benefit.

          Sorry Viad….the only way to keep that dollar is to put in under your mattress or into a savings account. Many of us believed Ronald Reagan and invested in our personal IRA accounts only to find that unscrupulous rating agencies played games with ratings so our hard earned “investments” disappeared into a puff a smoke and reappeared in hedge fund manager’s accounts! My original IRA was supposed to supplement my Social Security but it’s gone up in smoke 3 times since the 80s…. no one is looking out for working class Americans but the Democrats.

    I don’t trust a Republican majority to do anything that will benefit any group but the people who are already among the most comfortable and priviliged. When they did have a majority in the House, Senate, and White House there was no word on health care reform except for medicare part d. The elderly are a traditional Republican voting block. Republicans traditionally have to be dragged kicking and screaming into creating scenarios that will increase access to the general health care system. Republicans don’t care about you or me.

            I don’t know where you get your stats that only Republicans are charitable givers – or in your argument the only big charitable givers. I have several charitable organizations I give to every quarter handsomely, and frankly, they have never asked and nowhere on any donor information is it asked, “what political party do you belong to”.

      This is pure rubbish. Your comments are stereotypes, assumptions and generalizations.

      Sarah – all politics aside….it is people like you and your comments who perpetuate bias, prejudice and bigotry in this country. It is you that is the hypocrite when you talk about the “pros” of one side and then with extreme rudeness and spite slam the other side for what you perceive to be their “cons”.
      I know after reading many of your comments in past months that it is extremely hard for you to not assume things….so let me make it easy for you….I am not a Democrat or a Liberal and will not and have not ever voted for Obama. Use your head and not your feelings as your points will be taken and thought about in a much better way. Just sayin’

      Whatever dude. The man took over a financial nightmare exacerbated by a congress that spent freely and borrowed heavily on both sides of the aisle.
