The Republican plan for medical care is simple, amoral and evil.
The Republicans want the seniors to vote for a Medicare plan that allows those older than 55 to have Medicare until they die and to tell those younger than 55 good luck, you are at the tender mercies of private health insurers.
Medicaid would be given as a reduced block grant to states to do as they wish. Right now there are 14 states where, if you make more than $5,000 a year, you are making too much money to be eligible for Medicaid as a family of three. Thank goodness the poor don’t get sick.
Food stamps should be considered part of health care also, so the Republicans must cut it, too. Two dollars apiece per day for a family of three is way too much food.
Republicans just don’t understand that a civilized society doesn’t let people die in the street. I have too much compassion for mankind to be a Republican.
