For the record, we have heard this before.
…And I will — I will never turn Medicare into a voucher. No American should ever have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies. They should retire with the care and the dignity they have earned. Yes, we will reform and strengthen Medicare for the long haul, but we’ll do it by reducing the cost of health care, not by asking seniors to pay thousands of dollars more. And we will keep the promise of Social Security by taking the responsible steps to strengthen it, not by turning it over to Wall Street. ‘
Expiration date — the very next day:
In his convention speech in Charlotte, President Obama vowed to block the Republican Medicare reform plan because “no American should ever have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies.”But back in Washington, his Health and Human Services Department is launching a pilot program that would shift up to 2 million of the poorest and most-vulnerable seniors out of the federal Medicare program and into private health insurance plans overseen by the states….
You can bet if Obama’s mouth is moving, Obama is lying but what is ironic is that less than one day after lying to America by stating that he would “never turn Medicare into a voucher” and that “No American should ever have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies,” Americans learn that a program to do just that has been in the works for some time now.

I cannot wait to see the GOP ads on this one. Remember how Progressives attacked Paul Ryan for his Medicare voucher program? While Ryan’s program would not affect those 55 and older, Obama will. What a peach of a guy.
As far back as 2009, I pointed out that Barack Obama through Obamacare would throw the very people who vote and praise him under the bus, i.e., the poorest people in the country. I also indicated that Obama that under the bus is where Obama wants seniors and the disabled because has no love for them.
Reblogged this on BPI reblog and commented:
They WANT Senior Citizens to die off — sooner the better. They have already spent a lifetime working, building a life complete with families; then those families had families. There (WE) are no longer use to them.
Do you remember years ago the Movie, “Logan’s Run”. Well, here we are..
1976 Logan’s Run. In the movie, it dramatizes what is going on today…basically, if it feels good, do it…no matter who or what it is. This is TOO simplistic Hollywood style; however, the premise is the same.
You are old? You leave…one way or the other:
Here, here. During the last presidential campaign, I warned several of the retirees in my building and throughout my community that Obama had no use for the disabled and seniors. I repeated that warning during the debate and push of Obamacare. They refused to listen. In fact, many stopped talking to me. They could not get pass his skin color and saw this man as a messiah.
This is going to be a painful lesson.
We, Seniors, have VERY long memories. I was born in 1945. My grandparents, my parents told me tales that were passed down from their parents of the Civil War, WWI, WWII, The Korean War (commonly known as a “Police Action”).
We are the ones who have MEMORIES and know how things are supposed to be. We KNOW HOW AMERICA IS SUPPOSED TO BE!
And, what we are experiencing today IS NOT what it is supposed to be!
AMEN. We must communicate with the younger people in our lives (provided they will listen) because they have no idea what AMERICA is supposed to be. I tell my nieces all the time that they have never known the freedom that we enjoyed and that my grandchildren and their children will never know it either.
