Response to democrattotheend (Reply #25)

45. No.

The reason welfare and food stamps get demonized is they are paid to poor people. The lazy moocher claims are part of that demonization.

Plus, the exit polls provide some pretty good evidence that seniors who don't need Medicare

100% of seniors need Medicare. Not at the moment, but they will reach their end-of-life care, which will cost mind-boggling amounts of money.

56% of seniors voted for Romney, a 3-point increase over 2008 in spite of the fact that Romney's running mate was the architect of the plan to turn Medicare into a voucher system.

They were explicitly excluded them from that plan. They get traditional Medicare under Ryan's plan. So they did not have to vote to save their Medicare.

Means-testing Social Security is the path to it's destruction.
