Democrats will lead Medicare to bankruptcy
Joyce Harris wrote that seniors' interests were voted against by Reid Ribble when he supported the FY 2012 budget recently passed by the House.
Well, I'm a senior, and I pay attention, so I know the opposite is true.
Left in Democracts' hands, Medicare will be bankrupt by 2022. It was Democrats who stole $500 billion from Medicare when they passed ObamaCare.
President Barack Obama's FY 2012 budget got zero votes in the House. Democracts wouldn't even vote for it.
Harry Reid won't allow a budget vote in the Senate. The Senate has not passed a budget in 1,020 days.
This is a violation of the law. This was a country of law, once.
The Republicans' plan includes no changes for those 55 or oder. It is the best chance to save Medicare.
President Obama's plan is to just keep borrowing over a trillion dollars every year. This is the path to ruin for all of us. Remember our AAA credit rating?
The U.S. debt is now $15.6 trillion. The Medicare and Medicaid trustees estimate these programs have another $56.2 trillion in unfunded liabiilties.
This comes to $628,000 in debt for each and every household in the United States.
What happens when all of our taxes go to pay interest on the debt? What do we do when China won't lend us any more money?
That's where the Democrats will lead us. Is that in our best interest?
What do the Democrats do when they have spent all our money and borrowed as much as they can? Print more money.
Since Obama was elected, they have tripled the amount of dollars in circulation.
That's why bread, cereal, gas, etc. cost twice what they did when Obama took office. That's why your savings are worth 10 percent less every year.
Is this in our best interest?
Democrats will cry bloody murder over every spending reduction until the U.S.A. is bankrupt. Then all the government checks will stop. Is this in our best interest?
