The Democrats don’t seem too warm and fuzzy over the proposed Republican plan for Medicare reform. So you may be asking yourself … what is the Democrat plan for Medicare? Let’s let DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Shultz take a crack at that one:
Like I said, 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.’
Oh, that didn’t really answer the question … did it? After that response, can you tell me any more information about what the Democrats plan to do about our Medicare system? The answer is not only no but hell no. All they have is the fact that people are ignorant and don’t like the idea of changing how their Medicare is handled. So the Democrats’ brilliant plan is to have no plan, but simply demagogue the only reform that actually exists.
How’s that for leadership?
This wasn’t the only piece of brilliance from Debbie Wasserman Shultz over the weekend. According to her the evil Republicans think that illegal immigration is some sort of crime … the horror! Wait, what? Illegal immigration IS a crime, you twit. She says, “the Republican solution that I've seen in the last three years is that we should just pack them all up and ship them back to their own countries, and that in fact it should be a crime and we should arrest them all.”
Yep--she said it---I rest my case.
