Biden: ‘Folks, Follow Your Instincts’ On Medicare

Source: TPM

Vice President Biden took aim at Paul Ryan's proposals to privatize Medicare, after Ryan had criticized the "Obamacare" law for reducing spending In Medicare. Biden denounced Ryan for proposing a "voucher" to replace Medicare, which would cost seniors more money.

"Folks, follow your instincts," said Biden. "With regard to Social Security, we will not privatize it. If you listened to Mitt Romney and the Congressmen, during the Bush years, imagine where all of those seniors would be now if the money had been in the market.

"Their ideas are old, and their ideas are bad, and eliminate the guarantee of Medicare."

2. That was so sincere

 

So perfect. Even through all the gobbly gook and numbers, people stepped back and thought for a second and said 'yeah he is right.'

3. Americans got to hear what they needed to hear from the candidates

Specifics & statistics & facts. Obama stands by his record of job growth, effective State policy & deterrence, separation of church and state, women's right to choose, on and on and on.

Ryan was dodgy & defensive & unspecific. "We'll create 7 million jobs." HOW! Tell American How!

THANK YOU JOE!

5. It's quite simple for people to follow. Who do you trust with MediCare and Social Security?

The party that created both? (Democratic Party)

-- or --

The party that has been against both programs since their inception? (GOP/Repugs/Repukes)

6. My Instincts tell me

I don't want any stinking voucher program! I want what I paid for and what I was promised!

7. if their ideas are bad, make sure Democrats stop agreeing with them or at least put up

more of a fight before compromising.
