Nothing new here. Just concrete evidence of the DeMarxists stated intention to destroy health care for senior citizens, minority African-American and Hispanic seniors in particular. FOUR HUNDRED AND SIXTY BILLION DOLLARS in Medicare cuts, just for starters. These cuts will be used to fund other programs, including medical coverage for illegal aliens and funding for abortions among others.
The Demarxitons, in lockstep, voted 58-42 to strip the funds from Medicare in order to cover some THIRTY ONE MILLION ‘uninsured Americans’, of whom up to TWENTY MILLION may be illegal aliens.
As far as the doubly treacherous AARP is concerned, Senator John McCain stated it best when he said Thursday, “Take your AARP card, cut it in half and send it back”. “They’ve betrayed you”. Seniors have every right to be ready to fire up the tar kettles right now. Politically, this could prove disastrous for Democrats, as they desperately try to gain passage of the Senate version of the bill before the end of the year and the advent of next year’s midterm elections. The duplicitous AARP has given the DeMarxists the political cover they think they need, while claiming to speak for the majority of seniors which they DO NOT.
Republicans charged that Medicare is already in trouble. It needs to be fixed, not raided to create another new program. The Medicare vote went to the heart of seniors’ concerns that cuts from the program used to finance coverage for the uninsured will undermine the quality of their care. They are right on both counts despite the DeMarxists’ canned, thin and very unconvincing protestations to the contrary.
So what can you do? What can our seniors do? First, contact your local Patriot groups and find out what you can do in your neighborhood, region or state. Contact your local Republican district offices and do the same thing.
We have to act locally…speaking for my own state of California, when you have politicians who are more concerned with some mythical sea level rise, such as our Governor, rather than the 12.6% unemployment rate and lack of jobs caused by his fiscal irresponsibility, the crushing taxes and overbearing regulation that are causing jobs to exit our state wholesale…yes!…we need to start locally!
Add to that the continuing pressure we have to keep up on Congress, in particular the members of the Senate with emphasis on those facing election this coming year.
Dick Morris has stated that he believes we can win back both the House and the Senate next year. From his lips to God’s ears. God may need a little help folks…lets get busy!!
Semper Vigilans, Semper Fidelis
