24 Oct 2003 Senate Democrats to Seniors: We Don’t Care What You Like
Senate Democrats say the conservative plan to give seniors health care as good as that enjoyed by Members of Congress is the one thing that could destroy Medicare.
First, that’s either a reflection of stupidity or an intentional lie, as bankruptcy would destroy it pretty well.
But beyond that, the only way Medicare could be “destroyed” by seniors flocking to the alternatives conservatives want to offer is if seniors LIKE the other options better.
So what the Democrats are saying essentially is that they don’t give a darn what seniors want.
No surprise here, but infuriating anyway.
And let’s reflect for a second on what the Democrats are saying. They are saying that can’t countenance anything that would lead to the American people not needing or wanting a government program. Tells us a lot about their priorities, doesn’t it?
