He even votes “present” on stuff he supports.

But if it helps Kill The Bill, it works for me.

Democrat Underground sounds like someone walking across bubble-wrap right about now.

All those tiny empty heads exploding...

have people still not woke up yet to realise he says one thing and does another

No cuts then , well he might as well rip this Govt take over up then

I really would have thought by now that these sheep would have got out of their cult like mind but I bet there are still a few sheep out there who believe his crap.

History will show that the obama voters will go down as the dumbest voters in history but it seems that history will also show how a cult like status will still follow this Marxist

“I actually have said that it is important for us to make sure this thing is deficit neutral, without tricks,” Obama says. “I said I wouldn’t sign a bill that didn’t meet that criteria.”
::::::::
1.4 TRILLION — is that deficit neutral?? Is is 2012 yet??

If this thing gets by in the Senate I hope they strip the Medicare cuts from the bill.

I want to see 0bambi get all wee-weeed up!

KILL THE BILL!

He's cutting your Medicare but it's not a tax...it's just more cost TO YOU up the road.

Actually, they've already cut iT. My supplementary insurance (government approved) will go up 58% in January....BECAUSE OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND HOW IT PAYS.

Not only that, we've paid into Medficare....That's "stealing", plain and simple.

I only added the "I'm old too" thing because of two things. 1. I am old enough, and 2. I didn't want anyone to think I'm a youngster pissed off at old people they're having to support.

I've been getting screwed on taxes and payments for this and that since I'm 14 when I started working. After college 30 years ago, I started paying the maximums for SS and ever more each year for Medicare....

I realized a long time ago I'll lose out on it, but I don't let that bother me; I've made other plans and paid my way. I'm just trying to get these older Dems concerned mostly about themselves to see Zer0 doesn't give a shit about them.

A picture just flashed in my head of that cartoon with Obama clubbing fetuses in a Chicago dumpster.

That panel needs to be redrawn, with old people in wheelchairs instead of babies...

My grandad pays $90 a month for medicare - he’s pretty healthy just takes one med for hypertension ($10 for three months supply - thank you Walmart) - he figures he’ll be a thousand ahead each year by dropping it ....

I think some folks here misunderstood what the Zero said.

He is NOT promising to avoid cuts in Medicare services. He is promising to enforce the half trillion dollar cut in Medicare funding to pay for all the other Obamacare programs.

These cuts will result in serious rationing of Medicare services to the over-65 set. They might as well be put on iceflows. Got a bad knee? Forget about an MRI.

Got heart issues? Forget about the pacemaker or stent or angiogram - they’re too expensive. And that bad hip? Suck it up - you can have all the aspirin you want, but please die quickly.

How many old people fell for the “hopey Changie Dork”?

Did you expect the ‘change’ would be to socialism?

Don’t you feel stupid that you voted for someone whose only promise was “hope” and “change” (as opposed to despair and status quo)

They need to leave Medicare alone and completely revamp Medicaid...medical welfare.

It needs to be privatized and all insurance companies need to participate.

As a benefit, it needs to be available only to the truly needy. Others should be able to "buy into" it based on their income.

Full premium Medicaid should not be as good as real health insurance.

Right now, too many ineligible people are getting "free healthcare" and both the taxpayers and privately insured individuals are getting the short end of the stick.

"Healthcare inflation" is largely a result of cost shifting by providers from those who don't pay to those who do. This practice should be unnecessary and illegal.
