~Benjamin Disraeli, British statesman and Prime Minister
Yea, the Republicans really care. Oh, boy do they care. Democrats want death panels, not really! Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-WI) plan to destroy Social Security and Medicare would be a disaster and to people who are in their fifties and up, it would literally be a killer. They would be left high and dry. The alternative to medicare would be a bill starting at $11.000 a year and up for families and could go up with inflation and if you retire or are retired and don't have enough income because of Ryan's plan to axe Social security benefits your fucked. Ryan now has seven GOP co-sponsors for his plan to cut Social Security and Medicare. The conservatives will be chomping on the bit to support this disaster for Americans. Some of the GOP leaders are backing away from the Ryan's plan. But "... conservative groups love the plan - which cuts Social Security and Medicare benefits before effectively privatizing the entitlement programs" Of course if the little guy get his ball caught in a vice they won't give a damn. Ryan also supports and 8.5 percent consumer tax which will directly impact the middle and lower income tax payers while supporting tax breaks for the wealthiest members of society. The Democrats may push to have a vote on the floor of the house to see where the Republicans stand on it.
