Romney/Ryan plan for America Massive Redistribution Of Wealth From Middle Class To The Already Rich
Original Post HERE
The Romney-Ryan campaign is trying to position these two politicians as the champions of America's middle class and budget reformers, in the face of all evidence to the contrary. It is imperative that they are not allowed to do this. Their success will have a negative material impact on the middle class.
In America, our leaders are supposed to work for all of us, not just the wealthiest few. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are planning a massive transfer of wealth from working families to the already-rich.
Their top-down class warfare would make the entire middle class pay more taxes, end guaranteed Medicare, and cut Social Security -- all to pay for more wasteful tax breaks for the already-rich.
It's no wonder Romney picked Ryan to be his running mate -- Ryan's plan would let Romney pay a tax rate lower than 1% and end Medicare's guarantee of coverage that he'll never need. How out of touch can they get? Listening to them you'd think they really believe the middle class has it too easy and the already-rich have it too hard.
Here are verifiable facts that you should read and you must share. Our fellow Americans constantly vote against their own interest mostly because they choose to trust our Plutocracy’s media, the mainstream media. We know your friends and family trust you more however. Study all the objective data below and share with your circle of influence, your friends, family, acquaintances, & co-workers.
Does Obamacare rob Medicare by $700 billion?
*The real threat to Medicare is the Romney-Ryan plan to end Medicare as we know it, which replaces the Medicare guarantee of coverage with privatized vouchers. They want to stick your parents with a coupon to hand over to the insurance companies.
*Actually, that $700 billion in savings is just waste and abuse we're getting out of Medicare, to make sure seniors and taxpayers aren't getting ripped off. If that's so bad, why does the Romney-Ryan plan have the EXACT SAME $700 billion in savings?
*The only difference is that Ryan and Romney want to use that money to pay for more tax cuts for the already-rich. Obamacare puts the money back into Medicare to expand benefits and strengthen the trust fund.
*In fact, Obamacare does not cut Medicare benefits for seniors at all. In contrast, Romney's plan cuts $2 trillion from Medicare.

2. How Much More?
How much more do "they" need to live a comfy life style? How much more do they need to take from the lower and give to the upper? How much more can we listen to their frightening scenario of our future? People who have counted on at least surviving may not even be able to do that. We are backed up against the wall. While many understand what we are up against there are some,who are not racist,not political who cannot see how dangerous this duo is. How can they be convinced that if they get their way our lives will be a plan of social insecurity. Where will the nursing home residents go? When they lose their home the staff will no longer be needed. Homes lost. Jobs lost. When those living in their own homes find they can't make it. They lose. Banks gain. Another group lining the streets. Take away Medicare and many will no longer visit their doctor. SOme will surely die prematurely. Some will skip food and pay for meds--if they can. Some will still die--from malnutrition. Some will try anything for relief. Some will get worse from such treatment. Meanwhile many doctors will not have all those Medicare patients. Some have complained about lack of payment and others have already refused to take on Medicare only patients but there are some good doctors who know their patients will suffer without meds,without surgery. How much more of this kind of uncaring leadership will we as citizens be able to stand? It's all about money. Sadly the amount the average senior or disabled person gets in a year would barely be tip money in their world.
