Skip to comments.Who Will Mediscare the Dems? It's actually Obama who is throwing Granny under the bus.

And we will slow the growth of Medicare costs by strengthening an independent commission of doctors, nurses, medical experts and consumers who will look at all the evidence and recommend the best ways to reduce unnecessary spending while protecting access to the services that seniors need.
Since the board is not allowed by law to restrict treatments, ask seniors to pay more, or raise taxes or the retirement age, it can mean only one thing: arbitrarily paying less for the services seniors receive, via fiat pricing.
But can Granny truly understand?
Don’t underestimated my mother ( a granny ). She’s smarter than the average politician.
For two friggin’ years, seniors have gone without COLA. When we do get it, it will all go into a Medicare Part B increase.
AMMO LIST: OBAMACAREs WAR ON SENIORS & BUSINESS
Doctors are refusing new Medicare patients. The commodity lines have tripled in the past 2 years of very frail seniors, who qualify for a whopping $10-30 in food stamps. And the welfare queens beat them to the heating/cooling assistance because they are to frail to stand in line for HOURS at a time.
OK look. It ain’t really a question of do we cut off granny or do we cut off the babies...........whose mothers you have referred to as “welfare queens”.
It’s a question of stopping the printing of money. It’s a question of employing laws that allow small (as opposed to huge corporate) business to thrive so that our economy can get some traction. Every man that wants a job should be able to get a job. Even felons. The way our justice and police are operating now scars these young idiots for life so they can never get a job.
It’s further a question of getting the corporations to pay taxes.
And furthermore, what ever happened to letting granny live with you? Then maybe she could afford more.
Their independence to refuse Medicare patients as they have done with MediCal will only last until Obamacare forces them out of private practice into groups run and managed by the Secretary of HHS. Obama’s goal is to make physicians government employees with a union like the nurses. Can you imagine Granny’s outrage when the doctors go on strike?? That is if she survives this debacle Obamacare has as it’s goal to make health care delivery same as the post office. with the compassion of your local postal worker.
I figured drafting doc would be the next move. I thought this was the USA not CUBA!
