Obama's deficit plan tightens squeeze on Medicare

Sep 20, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: CBS Atlanta

When it comes to health care savings, President Barack Obama's deficit plan borrows a familiar strategy from corporate America's playbook: cut costs or shift them to others.

Day 4 of Wall Street occupation and media blackout continues! Search for occupywallst to get a glimpse of Police brutality and crackdown on America's middleclass uprising! There are no Tea Partiers there so it will not be covered by the dominant conservative mainstream media.

It will do no good to wait for the politicians to suddenly atone for their sins. They are too busy trying to keep their jobs, to do their jobs.

It will do no good to wait for the media to suddenly remember its origins as the 'free press,' the watchdog of democracy envisioned by Jefferson. They are too busy trying to get exclusive details about exactly how the bank robbers emptied the public's pockets, to give a damn about telling anybody what they looked like, or which way they went.

There is a tide pushing back the rights of each of us, and it has been artificially induced by union-bashing and the sowing of hatreds and fears, and now this ever-more-institutionalized economic battering of the average American. It will continue, and it will crush us, because those who created it are organized and unified and hell-bent.

And the only response for us is to be organized and unified and hell-bent in return. We must find again the energy and the purpose of the 1960's and early 1970's and we must protest this in the streets. We must arise, non-violently but insistently.

The world may be watching - but Americans arent seeing it except here- spread this!

The President’s plan is preferable to the republican’s desire to destroy Medicare… we’ll see which one the American people prefer. Something tells me the President has already won this battle, LOL.

Something tells me that you are listening to non-existant voices

The Repub plan is to phase out welfare
Obama's plan is a truckload of high explosives

BTW, Obama has NOT won, he blew up all chance of that

LOL. Speaking of destroying Medicare, Oblunder is still doing his best to take it out by trying to take away another $200B.

Profound and mature, yet you still claim to be a Marine, you accused Bush of spraying Chemtrails on everyone and you're still
clicking your own agree buttons under false topix names.

You are one pathetic loser.

American companies that outsource labor. Those companies should pay a tariff on imported products and that tariff money could go toward government works projects and employment training.

The Republicans would dearly love to drain every last penny out of Medicare and Social Security and turn it all over to the banksters and gangsters on Wall Street to plunder out (with the understanding that those Republicans who voted for it would get their share of the loot). And that would no doubt include almost every Republican in the Congress with a couple possible exceptions.

Obama's plan, as bad as it sounds, is a thousand times preferable to the utter bankruptcy the Republicans have in mind for Medicare and Social Security.

However, paying the doctors less may just cause a lot more of them to stop accepting Medicare
patients. It's happening right now and could get worse.

First you loons establish death panels, then you call them review boards, and now you want to cut Medicare........you're going to kill granny and grandpa if it kills you........pardon the pun.

I don't know whether to despise or feel sorry for libtards; If Oblunder gets his way, he will have drained almost $1 trillion out of medicare, yet libtards applaud it. How pathetic.

Obama's Proposals for Medicare:

It would require seniors to pay MORE for their Medicare benefits while cutting payments to doctors.

It would shift Medicaid costs to the states.

Even AARP blasted sections of the plan that would require seniors to pay more for certain Medicare benefits.

The proposals would RAISE deductibles and require CO-PAYS for some services.

TIME TO VOTE OUT THE LIAR OF CHIEF IN 2012.

VOTE OUT DEMOCRAT SENATORS IN 2012.

THEN RECLAIM AMERICA. LET'S BE PROUD AGAIN!

Despise them.

If you feel sorry for them, it might give credence to the fact that they are brainless
But they are clueless and destructive, not brainless

You know it would go a long way in helping you keep up if you would just read the article before you post your ignorance… the voices that you claim that I hear is me quoting the article, you idiot.

What you SHOULD have said is "15 levels beyond 'cupcake's comprehension'"

Not to worry, cupcake.

MCP must be the exception then, because his posts indicate that he is TOTALLY brainless.
