Medicare 2.0. That is how Romney/Ryan need to market their plan - as "Medicare 2.0" or something similar. "A much needed upgrade to the current Medicare plan." And make the point that when Microsoft rolls out an upgrade to their software, no one in their right mind runs around declaring that "This will end Windows 95 as we know it!!"
BTW - the IMPORTANT number is obviously the dollar amount spent on those "nearly 110 million" payments made to however many recipients. That doesn't change no matter how many people are receiving the payouts. THAT is the number that we should focus on decreasing (in the form of reducing the number of people who qualify for those programs by improving the country's economic outlook so that the recipients have opportunities to better their situations).
The "nearly 110 million" number often quoted adds the 54 million now on Medicaid and the 45 million now on SNAP. This presupposes that the recipients of each are mutually exclusive, which I am practically certain is not true. I think we should get our numbers dialed in instead of just repeating the same (probably) incorrect information.
As long as we are going to continue to provide Medicare, Romney/Ryan need to market their plan as "Medicare 2.0" or something similar. An upgrade to the current Medicare plan. And make the point that when Microsoft rolls out an upgrade to their software, no one in their right mind runs around declaring that "This will end Windows 95 as we know it!!"
You libs are all trying very hard to make this work, and I appreciate your effort. I KNOW you realize that he meant "business" based on your ned to call names. You have no belief in your position, and I don't blame you for THAT. Seein' as how yer wrong, and all.....
"That" can only refer to something singular - as in "a business". If he meant to refer to "roads and bridges", he would have said "you didn't build THOSE". He is a genius, afterall.
Re: the SCOTUS ruling.....This should be the questioning from every legitimate reporter going forward: Q: Given that the SC has deemed the health care act constitutional only insofar that it is a tax, and given Obama's pledge to not raise taxes on those making less than $250K, will Obama now work with the Congress to repeal the health care act? White House Probable Answer: No, of course not. As we've said all along, this is not a tax. It is a penalty. A fine, if you will. Q: So if you consider this to NOT be a tax, then are you saying that the health care act is unconstitutional? The SC has clearly stated it can ONLY be considered constitutional if it is considered a tax. WHPA: Next question.
