Ryan: Seniors will be denied treatment under Obamacare


August 15, 2012


Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan argued that President Obama’s health care law “will lead to denied care for current seniors” and result in the collapse of Medicare due to rising costs.

The Republican ticket has a plan to save Medicare from insolvency, unlike Obama, Ryan said.“We’re the ones who are not raiding Medicare to pay for Obamacare,” he told Fox News’ Brit Hume on Tuesday.“We’re the ones who are repealing President Obama’s 15-person bureaucratic board that will put price controls on Medicare that will lead to denied care for current seniors.”

Ryan was referring to the Independent Payment Advisory Board, which was the basis of Sarah Palin’s “death panels” argument during the health care debate, though Ryan uses more precision.

“IPAB is a board with the power to make recommendations to limit or lower reimbursements for Medicare providers beginning in 2014,” Devon Harrick of the National Center for Policy Analysis explained in The Washington Examiner.“While the law prohibits rationing of care or reducing benefits, it does not prohibit policies that would ultimately have the same effect. Faced with the limitation on rationing, the board will have few options other than reductions of payments to providers. Seniors already face difficulty finding primary care physicians who will treat them. IPAB will exacerbate that problem.

Ryan said that Obama’s failure to reform Medicare will destroy it.“We’re the ones who continue the guarantee of Medicare for people in or near retirement,” Ryan told Hume.“And you have to reform it for the younger generation in order to make the commitment stick for the current generation. President Obama is actually damaging medicare for current seniors — it’s irrefutable.”

The newest member of the presidential campaign reiterated that “we don’t want President Obama’s 15 bureaucrats making decisions” while discussing Republican proposals. Why did this person lie? It's exactly what they wrote into the Obamacare law. Me Emanuel wrote extensively about the need to let the old people die off since they are using more benefits and providing little in taxation.

Obamacare Raids Medicare and Makes Off With $716 Billion

by Keith Koffler
August 2, 2012

Obamacare would snatch $716 billion from Medicare to pay for its expensive outlays, an startling increase of nearly $200 billion from the original estimate of the law’s impact, according to an analysis by the independent Congressional Budget Office .

The new numbers create a potential political hazard for President Obama, who desperately needs the votes of Medicare beneficiaries in senior-rich swing states like Florida and Pennsylvania.

What’s more, the cuts are regressive, affecting all beneficiaries, since they are aimed at health care providers. Serious Medicare reform, which Obama has studiously avoided during his years as president, would be much more targeted toward benefits, particularly those of wealthier seniors.

An analysis of the original March 20, 2010 CBO estimate found that Obamacare would cost Medicare $533 billion dollars during the 2010-2019 ten year period, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, the independent health policy analysis group relied on by both Democrats and Republicans,.

Since the new estimate covers a later ten year period, the increase in Obamacare’s take from Medicare is not due to a mistake in the original estimate, but to a real and growing adverse effect of Obamacare on Medicare’s finances over time.

The huge cuts in Medicare, coupled with dramatic increases in taxes, were part of an effort by the law’s authors to overcompensate for the costs of Obamacare.



What Filth!

Obama Was Against Demonizing Ryan Before He Was For It

by Keith Koffler
August 13, 2012,

President Obama once counseled against the very attacks his campaign is launching against Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan, saying during a January 2010 appearance that politicians shouldn’t demonize proposals by charging they would harm seniors:

We’re not going to be able to do anything about any of these entitlements if what we do is characterize whatever proposals are put out there as,“Well, you know that’s – the other Party’s being irresponsible, the other Party’s trying to hurt our senior citizens.”

Have a look at our Lying Divisive Presidente:

This is all a difference of opinion about how to help people. Barack Husssein Obama's idea is to divide our citizens by race, ethnic groups, religion, etc. He will then choose who to "take from" and who to "give to." And, by doing so he cements government's control over everyone.
Willard Mitt Romney wants to creat jobs for those in need, no matter their race, ethnicity, or religion. To do that he will not "take" from anyone by raising taxes or dividing them and choosing who to help.
Don't even try to scream "help the rich" and "screw the poor." That is a damned lie.
IMHO, Barack Husssein Obama is a liberal, progressive, racist and , as such, is the most divisive president ever to sit his butt in the Oval Office.

In the 18 months the 112th Congress has been sworn in, the House has introduced 60 bills to rename post offices. Thirty-eight have passed the House and 26 have become law. During those 18 months, the House has produced 151 laws, 17 percent of which have been to rename post offices, according to Congressional Democrats.



Not a single bill has come to the House floor aimed at reforming a Postal Service, which is bleeding billions of dollars because of Congressional mandates.

The House of Representatives voted today to repeal the Affordable Care Act. It was the 33rd time Republicans have voted to chip away at, defund, or repeal the health care law. Democrats called the move a political charade since the repeal law has no chance of becoming law this year.

But leading into the Supreme Court’s health care decision on June 28, Speaker Boehner vowed to repeal anything that the justices left standing.

“We’ve made it pretty clear and I’ll make it clear one more time: If the court does not strike down the entire law, the House will move to repeal what’s left of it,” Boehner, R-Ohio, pledged the day before the ruling.“Obamacare is driving up the cost of health care and making it harder for small businesses to hire new workers.”

Poor teabagger.

Romney and the teabaggers want to give out "coupons" for the for-profit health care companies.

What happens when you have a heart attack and your "coupon" is only good for a broken leg?

Let the teabaggers use "coupons".

They won't even cover a one night in the hospital with a case of the "sniffles".

In the case of teabaggers, Ryan's plan won't even cover the cost of removing his cranium from his anus.

Obamacare Polls Find Supreme Court Ruling Not Uniting Americans

Posted: 07/03/2012

WASHINGTON -- Now that the Supreme Court has declared the health care law constitutional, will that ruling change public opinion about the law? Not very much, judging from five new surveys conducted since last week's decision.

The five national telephone surveys found Americans as divided as ever on Obamacare. All five registered a nearly even split, with roughly as many respondents saying they approve of the Supreme Court ruling as those saying they disapprove.

This is WHY Obama is Known as the MOST DIVISIVE Totus in American History!
