I sure enjoyed the denial by the head of the Democratic Party that Judge Murphy has anything to worry about and that all of his problems are caused by right-wing conspiracy Republicans.

I get a kick out of simpletons who think they are smarter than President Obama... how many of today's anti-Obama posters could accurately characterize the nature of politics in Yemen or the European economy? It is laughable for empty-headed morons to put themselves on an intellectual level with a genuine scholar and world leader. You people who say Obama should 'fix' the economy or that he doesn't know what he's saying are merely donkeys braying. As for the Republicans and some of the Democrats who want to strip the country clean for their own purposes, they are the danger to our American way of life, not the nurses or cops or firemen or teachers.

The 500 billion was cut from Medicare costs not benefits. The changes made by the President have extended the Medicare system by 12 years. There are many other changes that could be made to save it without destroying it the way Ryan proposes.
Republicans blocked proposals to bargain with Pharmaceutical companies to lower cost by many more billions.
No changes under Ryan's plan? The Congressional Budget Office says that costs for seniors will increase from 25% to 68% and that is if they can even find someone to insure them.
The heart of the problem is Republicans want seniors to accept the cost and give the rich tax breaks. 80% of Americans oppose that.
