I still have not figured out this affordable health care law. According to Mr. Chris Crew and Mr. Jim Eddy we are going to get all this free stuff and we are all going to be better off then we are today. It makes me wonder if they ever heard that old expression, there is no such thing as a free lunch.
If the government pays for all of this, they will be using our money to pay the doctor and the hospital — money that we will be required to pay when this thing kicks in.
There are a few things that are nice to have in that new law, such as coverage for pre-existing conditions. But again, you are going to have to pay for that, which will not be cheap.
And there is another thing I don’t understand, if more and more boomers are retiring every day, and being put on Medicare, why are they taking $700 billion out of Medicare? What are seniors to expect? Rationing and death panels?
I can just see it now, “Sorry Mr. and Mrs. senior citizen, we do not have enough money, because the Democrats took all the money out of Medicare. Would you like to talk to our end of life panel and here are some pain pills. We want you to die happy.”
And if this new law is so great, why did the Democrats in Congress exempt themselves from it?
When this new law was being discussed, I wrote a letter to Sen. Patty Murray, asking her not to vote for this thing. She wrote back and said she would not do anything like that to her senior constituents. But she voted for the law anyway. She lied is what she did.
Every one of those Democrats that voted for that new law ought to be taken out, tarred and feathered and run out of town.
The Democrats are now going around telling lies about Paul Ryan. They are saying that his budget will change Medicare as we know it. He has a plan to save Medicare, not gut it like Obamacare does.
So Mr. Chris Crew, Mr. Jim Eddy Mr. Michael Harp and Jane Hill, stick around for the finals in November. You Democrats ought to smarten up, and quit trying to scare the folks. You have been trying that for years, and it has not worked.
