Everyone has an option under the W-R plan to choose private insurance for better coverage or choose traditional Medicare and take what you get.
Where did you get that idea anyway? It's a proven falsehood and you're perpetrating it. Why would you want to do that?
Poor Carol. Trying her damndest to convince herself that Romney isn't trying to make a fool of her and anyone else who can't see through his latest shell game.

The notion of $500 billion(revised recently to $716 billion) in “cuts” ostensibly “stolen” from Medicare has been thoroughly debunked and discredited by everyone from Politifact to The Washington Post, both of which note that there aren’t any cuts to benefits — none. So it’s no surprise to learn that the bigger lie about $700 billion (or $717 billion or $716 billion) in cuts has also been widely debunked by fact-checkers everywhere including Bloomberg.

Obamacare doesn’t cut a single penny from Medicare benefits. In fact, it increases benefits through a variety of new programs including full coverage for preventative medical care without coinsurance or deductibles, discounts on prescription drugs and the gradual closure of the Part-D “donut hole.”

In total so far, 220,000 retirees have saved $3.4 billion they would have otherwise paid out-of-pocket without the dreaded Obamacare legislation.

So it turns out that the $717 billion number that Sununu was screeching about on CNN was pulled out of a July 24 CBO memo about the House plan to repeal Obamacare.

“Spending for Medicare would increase by an estimated $716 billion over that 2013–2022 period.”

There’s nothing in there about benefit cuts or anything else the Republicans have said. Nothing.

And now you can tell us all about how Perez was lying. I'm sure FOX has exposed the 'lie'. Or maybe not. lol
Why would anyone believe you or your Democrats when it's now known clear as day you are all a bunch of liars from the top down. Obama lies, Harry Reid has been exposed and the dirty lowlife campaing was caught in a lie about the despicable (new lows with Obama) ad implicating Romney in someones death.

Exactly the reason why yepperz RealDave, the moral inbred... Should join: Rainbow Coalition, NAACP, The Black Panthers, Nation of Islam, or one of many other leftwing lugnut hate group like 'The Crips'...

Is there more than one case?

Am I missing something?

"The episode—which Bartle Bull, a former civil rights lawyer and publisher of the left-wing Village Voice, calls "the most blatant form of voter intimidation I've ever seen"—began on Election Day 2008. Mr. Bull and others witnessed two Black Panthers in paramilitary garb at a polling place near downtown Philadelphia.(Some of this behavior is on YouTube.)"

Take Medicare. Please. What is Medicare except a program that lavishes tax dollars on the old and sick, people who are no longer paying much in taxes and who are a drain on society?

Talk to any old person. All they say is,“Gimme, gimme, gimme.” Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security. Me, me, me.

Shouldn’t money be saved for the strong? For the productive? For the superior individuals who are amassing happiness through their own sheer will, drive and, perhaps, large inheritances?

Some think Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan would “end Medicare as we know it.” Well, maybe it does and maybe it doesn’t. But you should have seen the plan we argued him out of. We don’t want to go into details, but let’s just say it involved ice floes.

Read and Comprehend????
the source please?????

How could you all say the POTUS,and his Minions,are
Racist????? What reaction from the DOJ,If White
Supremacists Dressed in KKK Garb,Were out side
a Voting Booth ,Brandishing Nite Sticks??????

(Answer) They would be locked up,Charged,so fast
their noses would bleed..

On the day President Obama was elected, armed men wearing the black berets and jackboots of the New Black Panther Party were stationed at the entrance to a polling place in Philadelphia. They brandished a weapon and intimidated voters and poll watchers. After the election, the Justice Department brought a voter-intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party and those armed thugs. I and other Justice attorneys diligently pursued the case and obtained an entry of default after the defendants ignored the charges. Before a final judgment could be entered in May 2009, our superiors ordered us to dismiss the case.

The New Black Panther case was the simplest and most obvious violation of federal law I saw in my Justice Department career. Because of the corrupt nature of the dismissal, statements falsely characterizing the case and, most of all, indefensible orders for the career attorneys not to comply with lawful subpoenas investigating the dismissal, this month I resigned my position as a Department of Justice (DOJ) attorney.

Why would Attorney General Eric Holder drop these charges against such a radical group? The Answer is Barack Hussein Obama.

Most disturbing, the dismissal is part of a creeping lawlessness infusing our government institutions. Citizens would be shocked to learn about the open and pervasive hostility within the Justice Department to bringing civil rights cases against nonwhite defendants on behalf of white victims. Equal enforcement of justice is not a
piority of the present DOJ.

C Adams.Former Attorney at Law for the DOJ.

BTW,This is a statement by the former Lawyer
who was handling the Case for the DOJ....Before
you all go all stupid on me???? He quit because

By the way folks - since a lowlife liberal is posting as Jimmy, trying to hijack my name, I created this Topix account (Real-Jimmy).

The liberal who posted as Jimmy is basically using the same lowball ethics as the Obama Administration and Harry Reid of lying/deception and in this case, trying to hijack.

If you see any further posts from "Jimmy", you will know it's one of the moronic libtards here doing a sockpuppet routine they are so good at (banned Keyedup/Tenzing/Dem, etc).

LOL!

Where are you liberal scum Jimmy? It was so simple to foil your deception. It will also be easy for Romney/Ryan to expose the deception/lies of the Obama campaign!

Using the statement of a racist will not help your case.

You also might want to consider the fact that the only person who felt intimidated was the flunkey with the camera that the GOP sent to see if they could come up with some 'good video'.

Also, it wasn't armed men. One guy with a nightstick. Wanna see the video of the non threatening behavior?
