FRSFreeStatePlus: Mitt Romney Hits President Obama on Medicare: Mitt Must Be Talking About a Different Plan

It must be great to live in the World of Mitt Romney, where you see things anyway you want to and have your own version of the truth. Even if you are the only person that sees that truth or perhaps people dumb enough to buy your snake oil or used Ford Pinto's or Ford Chevy Chevette's. Maybe I'll visit Mitt World the next time a need a break from reality and I'm out of pot. I just heard Mitt talk about what he saw as President Obama's Medicare Plan, the one that was part of the 2010 Affordable Care Act. Perhaps now known better as Romney/Obamacare, since Mitt Romney endorsed this plan. Again last week, after he spent a year running away from his own Healthcare Law that he signed as Governor of Massachusetts back in 2005 or 2006. He was for his own Healthcare Law, before he was against it, before he was for it again, watching Mitt Romney the politician. Is like watching a tennis match, ball bouncing back and fourth, not sure where its going to land and stay. Governor Romney what is your position on issue a, I don't know I haven't taken a poll on that yet. That's Mitt Romney's politics, what do I have to say to get elected and what do I have to say against my opponent to make them look as bad as I can. Before voters wake up and realize I'm a fraud and a wannabe career politician whose never been good enough at politics to hold an office for a long period of time.

The truth about the Affordable Care Act or Romney/Obamacare, is that it limits payments to the Health Insurance Industry and puts that money back into Medicare. Where it belongs thats been paid for by anyone whose ever had a job in America after 1965 and uses that money to pay for Medicare Advantage. The Prescription Drug Benefit that was passed in the middle of a Friday Night back in November of 2003. Because House Republicans didn't have enough votes to pass that law going in and spent hours after the debate had already concluded. Stiff arming House Republicans to vote for that bill, a bill these Republicans knew was a bad idea. Because it expanded an Entitlement Program, something they probably wouldn't of voted for when it was originally passed. And borrowed 500B$ to pay for Prescription Drugs, what the President did was fully fund Medicare Advantage.

What the Ryan Plan, well I guess its now the Romney/Ryan Plan does with Medicare, is force seniors by 2023. Out of Medicare, whether they want to leave it or not. Paul Ryan still will not be eligible for Medicare at that point, so even if this plan were to become law. And John Boehner married Harry Reid, about the same odds. Paul Ryan would still have about twelve years to fix it. Before he became eligible for Medicare.
