I'd hate to be Ryan or Romney defending their stand on doing away with the 70+ year old very successfull and dependable SS and Medicare programs as our elderly have known them.
WHY YOU ASK ??
Because the fixes to the problems the Baby Boomer generation have presented, are so easy and painless as pointed out several times by the Congressional Budget Office. All it takes is raising the current cut off for taking SS/Medicare deductions from $110,000 up to apporximately $180,000 to $210,000. Anyone afraid that this income group will not be able to afford their medications or food with such an increase ? Anyone afraid they won't be able to drive their cadilacs, SUV's or Beemers ? Shall we weep for the pain they will suffer for paying a bit more in SS taxes ? But Ryan would have people living on $15,000 to $20,000 a year retirement, paying out $4,000 to $6,000 thousand more for health care and meds. But Ryan say's "LET THE LITTLE PEOPLE LIVE ON $10,000 to $15,000". AND YET SOME REPUBS THINK THE AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS ARE GOING TO VOTE FOR THIS BULLSHIT ?
THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR ALL THE HYPE AND FEARMONGERING FROM THE FAR RIGHT RYAN TO MAKE SUCH DRASTIC CHANGES. What truthful excuse will he use to back the need for such changes when the fix is so easy ?
Think about all of the above, then let it soak in that with Ryan's gift of money to the rich and more money going to the military all at the expense of the poor, elderly and the Middle Class, and then face it that very little overall movement toward ending the deficits or the debts will result.
TELL US WHY WE WANT THIS RYAN BUDGET IDEA TO PASS ??
NO WONDER THE REPUBS DON'T WANT TO TALKE ABOUT THIS ?
