Skip to comments.Seniors Must Scrutinize Medicare Mailer
Posted on 06/08/2010 4:09:53 PM PDT by Kaslin
As weeks turned to months during the Great Debate over what to do about health care this past year, President Obama made one solemn pledge to the nation and its seniors:
He said health care would not add one dime to the deficit. And if all of us liked our doctor, we would get to keep our doctor.
Fast-forward almost 90 days after the passage of ObamaCare and the attitude of most Americans to that pledge is: "Prove it."
In the past two weeks, the Obama administration has been trying to stem the tide of skepticism toward its health care law with a new mailer sent directly to the nation's seniors, titled "Medicare and the New Health Care Law What it Means for You."
Problem is, for anyone who has paid attention during the past 12 months, the message about the biggest government expansion into health care in our lifetime just doesn't add up.
Let's contrast fact from fiction and the language used in the new flier:
"The Affordable Care Act passed by Congress and signed by President Obama this year will provide you and your family greater savings and increased quality of care."
Fact: Most Americans will pay higher insurance premiums, according to the Congressional Budget Office. And more than 10 million seniors will see reduced benefits under their private Medicare Advantage plans. Overall quality will decline as fewer doctors take on Medicare patients.
"Your guaranteed Medicare benefits won't change whether you get them through Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage plan."

He’s still pushing that turd and unfortunately the Seniors that are buying it are high on the list of the Nigerian scammers.
Good news is if you push a turd far enough thtere’s nothing left to push.
I got one of those. As soon as I saw Kathleen Sebelious’s name on it I trash canned it.
This one REALLY outraged my when I got it in the mail.
Spending how many 10’s of millions of our dollars for this lying, totally political bit of propaganda!!!!!!
“Your guaranteed Medicare benefits won’t change whether you get them through Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage plan.”
Print them out and distribute them to all the seniors you know.

The reality is that Social Security and Medicare are Ponzi schemes about to crash on the rocks of reality over the next decade.
We can argue about the details, but that’s the big picture.
The important part is that Democrats get the “credit” for implementing these schemes.

We received TWO of them. One for each of us.
The mailer is full of propaganda BS, telling us how much better off we are now with our medicare benefits cut so Bozocare can be funded. They even lie and say that Medicare Advantage won’t be changed for some, which is pure lie.
My Democrat neighbors who defended Obama vehemently when he was first elected told me that due to what they did to seniors in his Obamacare bill, THEY WILL NEVER AGAIN VOTE DEMOCRAT. The wife is a life long Democrat and has never voted any other way. The husband said we are headed for a dictatorship.....Many are waking up.
Your neighbors are two. How many millions more need to wake up before this national nightmare ends?
