Posted on 08/14/2012 7:42:57 AM PDT by Olog-hai
In a swipe at the GOP presidential ticket, senior Obama adviser David Axelrod on Tuesday defended President Barack Obamas handling of Medicare.
took away subsidies, unwarranted subsidies, to insurance companies, and he used that money to help lengthen the life of Medicare by nearly a decade, Axelrod said on CNNs Starting Point, referencing a provision of the new health care law. So when Gov. Romney says he doesnt support that, obviously

Fine. But Obama will bankrupt the COUNTRY.
No, Obama cutting $700 billion out of Medicare to fund his Obama care disaster is bankrupting Medicare.
Little Davy “The Bogeyman” Axelgrease scaring the old folks again. It’s all the commie ‘RATS have. How ‘bout that 700 billion you guys are taking from Medicare to pay for CommieCare Davy? What about that?
The question is not WHO will bankrupt Medicare, but WHEN. One side is in a hurry, the other is sauntering, but they’re both headed there.
What he means to say is, “Romney will take away our power to scare the living daylights out of senior citizens in order to frighten them into voting for us.”..............
Obama will bankrupt Medicare and the country. Ryan has a plan to save Medicare thtat doesn’t even touch Medicare for current seniors.
Obama also mandated a 15% oerating margin for insurance companies. The average operating margin prior to this was about 30%, so he mandated that they provide more services for half the operating money. That’ll work, I’m sure.
The Federal government is bankrupt in all but name, and therefore, so are all its programs.
What Axlerod is thinking is "Why bankrupt Medicare when we have the opportunity to destroy the whole of our economic system".
He considers Romney a wimp for not going for more.
Still trying to figure out how a fiscal hawk like Ryan got picked by the author of Romneycare, but I’m hoping that one of the deals Ryan made was “I do the budget.”
Axelrod’s lying - it’s part of the Chicago Way...
Today’s seniors are not the seniors of yesteryear. The Baby Boomer Generation is quickly taking over the title. They don’t remember Roosevelt, The Great Depression or The New Deal. They are more college educated than the previous generation and are more savvy to the lies and distortions of government agencies and politicians. They were the idealists and the cultural drivers of the 50’s 60’s and 70’s. They were also the high wage earners and family raisers of the 80’s and 90’s. They don’t scare as easy as the old FDR Democrat Seniors of the past. They know better, because they have seen it better..................
Obama’s people are telling us what the king will complete doing once he gets his second term. Whatever they are accusing is their m.o.
The media have given Obama a pass on his cutting $700 billion out of Medicare. We’re not supposed to talk about that. Instead, we’re supposed to be scared of Paul Ryan throwing Granny off the cliff.
What else will come out about Ryan? I’m just waiting for the liberals to talk about how he worked as a young man for Oscar Meyer, and that he drove the Weinermobile. The liberal comedians will have lots of fun with that. And they will say, how does someone who drives the Weinermobile get elected to Congress, LOL, and basically do the dunce Dan Quayle thing on him.
Now that is a picture of what you call a target rich environment!
Axelrod and the Chicago Communists have already
stolen 3/4 TRILLION dollars from Medicare.
...and the bartender asks, “:What will you have, President?”
Medicare was doing so well until Mitt came along.
You mean more than it is already?
In any case, we need to bankrupt Medicare before it bankrupts us...
What we are up against...?.....
People who not only question or oppose or do not believe in (God or) ethics or morals.... but Do Not Care. “Truth” is only an inaccurate construct, it is dysfunctional. Morality and the avoidance (and even the concept) of “evil” are all discarded; morality is nothing but a means by which some people rule over others. The purpose is to rule, and the astute will replace old, out-dated concepts (God, Bible, Church or Synagogue, good and evil, etc.) with new (or Transformed?), and more “healthy” ways of thinking.
Nietzsche would be proud?
(One wonders whether his pastor father would be, however...)
Its already bankrupt. Next attack please
Why doesn’t someone ask the dems about the 700 billion dollars from Medicare to fund Obamacare..If Obamacare goes into effect seniors will be on medicaid
If you look up the word communist lunatic in the dictionary a photo of AXELROD appears. Axelrod, I have another talking point for you. Ah, the republicans are going to put grease on the sidewalks so old people slip and fall. Axelrod go back to your communist teaching job and try and brainwash some more ignorant college kids, because your out of work in 90 days.
It’s already bankrupt, thanks to Obama who robbed it to pay off his political friends.
Which is exactly who my Wife’s Brother will be losing his Job at Blue Cross next year.
Sorry to hear that.
Being in CA, it didn't make any difference how he Voted, but what comes around goes around. I think he learned his lesson, but we'll see how that works out. Yes, my Wife doesn't read my Posts here. LOL
Well I won’t drop a dime on you!
I have a good idea what will happen. Companies will send their current employees
to the city, to get a business license and become contractors.
