Drugs which are over priced because of terrible policy for patents and over regulation that causes shortages…not to mention that Medicare will be bankrupt in only 8 years (2020)…so assuming that Julia is 3 right now then she’ll be 65 in 2074 Medicare will have been bankrupt for over 50 years, so I’m not sure how it’s paying for her prescription drugs, but Obama is just a magical being and can do anything he wants. 2074, a mere 66 years of Obama in office, Obama will also be about 110…one has to wonder how he is still cogent enough to rule with an iron fist, I’m not ruling out at this point a deal with Mephistopheles). Or to put this another way, the Congressional Budget Office projects that, assuming the economy keeps growing at a steady rate (not under Obama it won’t) and that Medicare keeps growing at the rate it has been then right now it accounts for 2.9% of GDP, in 2020 when it goes bankrupt it will account for about 4.1% of GDP, and in 2074 it will account for about 12.8% of GDP (over 4 times the bankruptcy level).
Under the Ryan plan which brings in competition and sanity the Medicare program is saved and it puts the whole system on a track to have private competition drive costs down across the board. And Romney’s plan is pretty much the same. So let me see here, a plan to keep Medicare alive and create private competition that will turn Medicare back into a safety net for those who absolutely need it rather than a money and soul sucking entitlement. Oohhh, tough choice. Throw granny off a cliff in 2020 or make the program actually work. I’m sure trying to make sure that a safety net is around for Julia later in life is just right-wing social engineering. Yes Romney and Ryan would end Medicare as we know it—they’d make it work.
Well under current Social Security plans she is pulling out more than she put in (goddamn moocher)…of course that’s if she is 67 right now and pulling out benefits. If this is 64 years from now after Obama’s obscenely long rule as dictator she won’t be drawing any benefits whatsoever as Social Security will be bankrupt in only a few years (kind of like Medicare)
Now I’m not sure where they get the 40% number (I searched for it, and I couldn’t even find that number listed on any liberal websites) so I am forced to conclude (like unemployment numbers and so many other facts purported by Obama and his administration) that these numbers are a complete and total fiction.
Now what the Ryan plan calls for is a slowdown in the growth of Social Security and Romney calls for:
Wow cut benefits from social security for the rich…how terrible. Also exactly which reasonable person is arguing that we don’t need to raise the retirement age and probably slow growth to at least only account for inflation if not under inflation to put benefits back on par with what the person has put in.
In the final analysis there are numerous problems with the life of Julia.
Obama’s rule for almost another 7 decades.
Obama proudly touting cradle to grave socialism.
Obama seeing nothing wrong with a person who needs government help at every stage of their life.
The obscene amount of lies in every single supposed fact and number that Obama’s people displayed in the show.
Ask yourself if you want to live the life of Julia? Dependency, ignorance, control, misery. That’s what Obama is offering in this plan. Makes you yearn for the sweet-talk of Mondale promising to raise our taxes; it was at least more honest and less power hungry.
