Medicaire is a contributory program for seniors. Obama has shifted that money to his all encompassing health care plan. Too many fools like you want to make it a politcal issue without an ounce of facts to support your position. Outrageous, Bill. Get out of the PM and get into the AM.

Just what did I say that was false. Republica ans are trying to change MC which I support. It is on the edge of collapse. And. I support honest debate on the issue. Please point out what offended you to the point of taking the discussion to insults.
Candidates running for election who love to use fear mongering and scare tactics to persuade voters are usually hiding their incompetency. This election cycle is no exception, and it has never been more apparent than when it comes to debating the issue of Medicare.

President Barack Obama and the Democrats on Capitol Hill are constantly telling Americans that Republicans want to “End Medicare as we know it.” However, just by saying it does not make it true.
