GOP Logic On Medicare And Medicaid --- We Need To Cut Life Expectancy And ----

survivability in order to cut costs on both programs and save them. According to Donohue of the US Chamber of Commerce old people live too long and too many poor people survive their chronic illnesses. So I guess that is the logic for raising Medicare eligibility to 70 (why not 75 or 80?) and not covering poor people. They can all die off before billionaires or milloinaires have to pay more taxes or businesses have to pay better wages.

The greed is just so psychopathic right now.

1. GOP is the party of Pro-Life, afraid of "death panels" in the ACA, they can't be against

medical care can they? Well you are right, the need for the 1% to pay less in taxes overpowers the need for medical care according to the GOP.
