Democrats Plan To Have No Plan
By Michael Duncan on May 27, 2011
If we do not act now, the failure of leadership by President Obama and Democrats in Congress will lead our Medicare system to certain bankruptcy. We can save Medicare for current seniors and make sure it's around for our children and grandchildren by supporting Representative Paul Ryan's plan.
In his "Path to Prosperity," Rep. Ryan has laid out a plan to save Medicare by creating a patient-centered system for seniors that gives them more choices for their health care while reining in exploding costs.
Rep. Ryan's plan ensures that present seniors in Medicare are not affected and provides a sustainable path for future enrollees. In the video below Rep. Ryan offers a powerful explanation of his plan:
It's simple, it's cost-effective and it puts the patient-not bureaucrats-in control. But President Obama and Democrats believe attacking Rep. Ryan's plan, while offering no solutions of their own for saving Medicare, is a winning electoral strategy: Attack Rep. Ryan, win the next election.
But the Democrats' strategy is even larger than Ryan or Medicare. Last week not one Democrat supported President Obama's budget proposal, which went down in a 0-97 vote. In fact, it's been nearly 760 days since the Democrats passed a budget.
Democrats have no plan on Medicare, no plan on the budget, and no plan on the debt ceiling. They plan to have no plan.
The problem is this "strategy" will come at the expense of seniors and taxpayers. Worst part is that President Obama has already admitted we're on an unsustainable course in Medicare:
"Medicare is slated to go into the red in about eight to 10 years. I don't know if people are aware of that." - President Barack Obama, August 2009
We're aware Mr. President, now what are you going to do about it?
