Because, as usual, the conservatives always have to clean up and manage the mess liberals make. The conservatives managed to clean up welfare under Clinton. The Democrats just came back and messed it up again.<quoted text>
Why would anyone other than a moron expect a party that has always opposed Medicare to save it? If you were educated and honest you would say...yes republicans oppose it and ALWAYS have as socialism. We're all on our own. But you unethical liars try to sell the lies to the unsuspecting. A voucher will NEVER cover all the expenses of even a relatively healthy elderly person. If these people don't have their own extensive resources and people to help them get proper coverage to cover the difference they will DIE and or go broke.
THere will be NOTHING left in most estates for future heirs because family fortunes will be wiped out by even one serious illness.
Do any of you righties actually think for yourselves?
This is likely way over your head.
Medicare is another mess but it's not going anywhere now. The only thing left is to try and preserve it and keep it from bankrupting the nation.
