Tea Partiers to Congressman Ryan: Keep Your Cotton-Pickin' Hands Off Our Hoverounds!

And who said the Tea Party was irrational?

Ryan's budget does not cut Medicare. It increases it by 70%.

According to the Wall Street Journal:
“The plan would essentially end Medicare.”

My 90-year-old mother would be given a coupon good for 32% off the cost of finding her own insurance...and since the proposal re-instates insurance companies' privilege to deny coverage based on pre-existing conditions (of which she has several), I doubt she'd find insurance. Estimates are that most of the elderly would have to pay at least $6400 more to even find coverage.

Besides, my mother has a hard time finding herself most days - how the hell is she supposed to find, evaluate, and choose an insurance policy? It's taken me 2 years to explain Medicare Part D to her, and convince her to get the drugstore to USE it!

The Ryan plan is heartless at best, and cruel at worst.

Where do the idiots get their numbers? A 70% increase is off the wall total BS.
Lying talk show hosts and TV sensaionalists I suppose...

Sooner than I like, I will be where opinionated's mother is. She is right; how do you explain all this to a 90 year old. Hell, how do you explain it to a 60 year old, when all his life he has paid into a system that is supposed to secure health care for him in retirement? Medicare is difficult to understand now, and these rethugs want to put it in private hands, the same hands that have wrecked American health care...go figure.

Maybe if your 90 year old mother is not capable of handling her affairs, you should do it for her or have her committed in order for her to receive care. It is apparent you are the entity that is cruel or heartless.
