What good is MANDATORY INSURANCE is you can't find a doctor to treat you?

This really bothers me.I know a lot of elderly people that would be doomed right now if this mandate ever goes into effect.

Obama intentionally HID this cost burden because it would have added 100's of Billions of dollars to the CBO score.

It's called "Deception" and "Lies." It's what Obama is all about.

I noticed he said pay 'freeze' would save a lot of money.

I wonder if their medical plans will be cut too?

Hummmmmmm....I don't see any of the Left's moral outrage on this thread! I guess they are a too rich to be on Medicare, or even give a damn about those that are!

So you want to get rid of Medicare, keep it, reduce it, or increase it? My guess is that you want to get rid of it.

Billions are spent to kill and mame people by The United States Government all over the World, but when it comes to healing and reducing pain and suffering for the elderly of this Country they cut those funds. Guess the money for the Boardrooms and The Bankers had to come from some where.

I say Medicare should be fully funded. Let the BUSH tax cuts expire for anyone NETTING more than $1 MILLION a year. What's your solution or do we have to wait until January to hear?

Republicans will be in charge of the House next month. Let's see what they will do. Will the Republicans keep Medicare payments or reduce them? Will Republicans cut the payments from We the People to doctors? Me thinks "NO" because Republicans LOVE getting PAID by the government and never knew a subsidy that they didn't like when they were on the receiving end. We would have NO WAR if we didn't have for-profit warmongers. Dwight Eisenhower warned against that.

It's more like 'Logen's Run' when the light goes off in your hand,you have to turn yourself in and die.

If you remember that movie,it's already too late for you.

Well that may be.
But arn't you a little worried about the way the elderly are treated? You can't be that 'aloof'

[That's a new word I'm trying out]
