Democrats plan to end medicare as we know it … It’s called ObamaCare … Just ration it all.
If you sense that a theme is emerging (“Republicans are evil, blame Republicans”), you are right. On Sunday, Wasserman Shultz appeared on Face the Nation, where she used those same well-honed analytical skills to explain to host Harry Smith the Democrats’ plan for rescuing Medicare from impending bankruptcy. Here is the exchange:
Smith: But the Trustees also said a couple of Fridays ago that this thing (Medicare) could be insolvent in the next decade. Doesn’t something really dramatic have to happen, and as the Congressman suggested, Republicans have a plan, do the Democrats have a plan?
Wasserman Schultz: Like I said [sic], the Republicans have a plan to end Medicare as we know it. What they would do is they would take the people who are younger than 55 years old today and tell them You know what? You’re on your own. Go and find private health insurance in the healthcare insurance market, we’re going to throw you to the wolves and allow insurance companies to deny you coverage and drop you for pre-existing conditions. We’re going to give you X amount of dollars and you figure it out.
Got that? The Democrats’ plan is to demagogue Paul Ryan’s plan, using scare tactics (“throws seniors to the wolves”). One can scarcely wait for the next installment of Debbie Does Dunderhead, although the DNC chair is sure to oblige the next time she opens her mouth.
