“What's wrong with a socialist nation if everyone gets health care? How is Medicare not socialism?”

“You did not get the point at all. This nation was built on the premise of freedom, we are slowly losing our freedom by allowing the government to get too big and powerful. If you don't understand - hopefully at some point you will before it is too late.”

“Wrong. Even though ObamaCare "cuts" Medicare; it isn't really a cut, it's health care reform aimed at improving care for seniors. The fact is, millions more seniors will be covered under Obama's health care plan. Here are some things that the program does to improve Medicare:

• ObamaCare closes the "donut hole" that was causing Seniors not to be able to afford their prescriptions. (The Medicare "donut hole" is the Part D drug coverage limit where seniors must start paying out of pocket for their prescriptions.) In 2012, seniors got a 50 percent discount when buying brand name drugs and 14 percent discount on generic drugs covered by Medicare Part D. This reform gets stronger every year, increasing coverage and closing the donut hole until it disappears in 2020. From that point on, seniors will only pay usual drug co-pays.

• ObamaCare expands existing coverage for seniors, including preventive care and wellness visits without charging you for the Part B co-insurance or deductible. This reform has been active since 2011 and gives seniors better access to cancer screenings, wellness visits, personalized prevention plans, vaccines, flue shots and more.

• ObamaCare does not cut any benefits from Medicare Advantage.

• ObamaCare reigns excess spending on Medicare Advantage, which is currently causing a burden on the tax payer that is disproportionate to the amount of people it helps. Medicare Advantage is run by private insurers and costs $1,000 more per person”

“How about we cut subsidies to oil companies and banks who are making record profits?”

JohnsPaulus on Dec 31, 2013 at 16:32:00

“There you go again with that propaganda that has been fed to you and that you believe to be true. You have become such a good parrot of the propaganda machine repeating the same lies told to you.

Now if you want to save billions, we can cut subsidies to these green energy companies where billions have gone and billions have been lost.

“I thought the GOP was going to create jobs. That's the platform they ran on in 2010. They'be voted down any bill that would create jobs. Unemployment is high here because the jobs have been outsourced to China and India.”
