I don't know if I would go so far as to say I am "happy" about it, but I think Paul Ryan was a pretty good choice for the GOP's VP candidate. Who knows what it might eventually mean for Medicare, but Ryan seems to be likeable, a good speaker, and fairly handsome, which probably isn't going to hurt anything, LOL.

Where do you know nothings get your facts? Do you all think in sound bytes because it is easier than using your brains or looking up the facts?

First off there are no vouchers - that is an Obama/media spin and label.

There are no immediate changes under the Ryan plan. If you are 55 or older or are already disabled or drawing social security regardless of age it does not affect you at all.

If you are under 55 you have two options.

One you can stay in the current system or you can opt out for a GUARANTEED MEDICAL PAYMENT PLAN.

Money is paid into a Guaranteed plan for future use just like you pay into an insurance retirement plan. IN FACT IS ALMOST IDENTICAL TO WHAT THE GOVERNMENT WORKERS AND CONGRESS NOW HAS.

It is not a voucher.

Obama has already raided 750 Billion out of Medicare to pay for Obamacare to keep the actual cost of Obamacare hidden for awhile.

Obama is the only president to cut medicare spending.

Under Obama's plan in as little as 7 years Medicare will pay a maximum of 1/3 of what it now pays for your medical care which means you will have one heck of a hard time getting decent medical care or even finding anyone that will take you on as a patient.

Anyone on medicare will tell you it sucks now - can you imagine how bad it will be when 2/3 of the payments are cut out?????

Ryans plan is gradual and it will take 30 years to fully implement it and bring medicare back to full solvency - in the meantime it remains pretty much unchanged for nearly all of us that are 35 or above.

If we don't make these changes medicare will eat itself to death and implode.

Social security and medicare were raided for over 40 years to pay for every social program from welfare to food stamps to giving foreigners guaranteed business loans...

In short the liberal entitlement mindset spent all your money instead of leaving it it alone and now it is gone.

Anyone with half a brain will see Obama's path is one of destruction.

Obama made history - Romney/Ryan at least presents a realistic future.

You can't debate the facts so you post a liberal hack job opinion page?

Wow! You would rather believe spin and hype than fact and truth.

Like I said, you are know nothing that would rather think in sound bytes than use your brain.

And to think - you might actually vote.... WOW!

Obama praised Ryan's plan in 2010 - for those that can't understand what they read this is a video:

Videos surface of Dems, including Obama praising Ryan's plan:

President Obama Highlights Paul Ryan's Efforts to Save Medicare & Social Security

It’s also true that the president has cut more than $700 billion from Medicare and credits it toward the cost of Obamacare. While some of those cuts are admirable—everyone wants to see fraud reduced—other cuts are in payments to providers. And it’s a bit disingenuous of Team Obama to claim these cuts won’t affect benefits. In Texas, one of the few states to track doctor drop-outs, the number of physicians accepting Medicare patients fell from 78 percent in 2000 to 58 percent in 2012—because of cuts in payments, with more cuts to come. Punishing doctors with lower, sometimes below-cost fees for treating Medicare patients means fewer doctors, decreased care, and even—yes—the potential for rationing of care.

Sadly, all of this could have been avoided had President Obama simply led and acted on the 2010 Simpson-Bowles plan.


What in Hades is wrong you mind-twisted liberal cry-babies?

It won't be long and your food stamp card will be worthless if this spending buffoon gets re-elected. If you are into suicide take a long walk off as steep cliff somewhere and at least let the vultures get a free meal, but don't drag the rest of us down the economic toilet with you.

God gave you a brain use it!

He gave you legs - stand on them and get off your knees!

He gave you feet - walk away from our current policies.

He gave you eyes - wipe the crap out of them so you can clearly see - and read the truth.

He gave you a tongue to speak the truth and for those that find it hard to speak the truth he gave you teeth to either bite down on it or put behind a cage so it doesn't slip out and spread more lies.

Look this guy is out of DC... a paid website monitor for Obama...

What a crock of crap. Obama must be terrified of the truth - so much so he pays people to pay attention to places like Jackson County, KY and McKee?

Michelle Obama Charges $5000 to Have Her Picture Taken...


Michelle Obama thinks so highly of herself that she feels she is worth $5,000 to have a single photo of her taken. Hey, but that is just pennies compared to the millions she feels she is entitled to by taking trips to Africa, Spain, and 14 other places.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

On Sunday evening, Michelle Obama attended a fundraiser hosted by Warner Bros. CEO Barry Meyer. Tickets started at $2,500, and a photo with the First Lady cost $5,000 per person.

In his introduction of the First Lady, Meyer stressed the need to keep President Obama in office and that he and his fellow media moguls needed to remember why they were involved in politics.

Michelle won't be pocketing the money. The Hollywood Reporter:

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee of Obama for America, the Democratic National Committee and several state Democratic parties.
