Much of the 2008 presidential campaign was about universal health care. Paul Ryan still proposes repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Much of the 2012 presidential campaign concerned medicaid, here Paul Ryan again attacks medicare on the losing side.
This move would add 716 Billion to the federal deficit. The 716 billion the congressional budget committee says the PPACA saved. This savings was the 716 billion of waste in medicare that the PPACA eliminated without effecting patient benefits. Why reinstate waste? Simple, this is money paid for no service making hospital administrators, the rich, richer.
Republicans lost, not because they could not get their message across, but because we are listening and the majority of Americans are NOT STUPID. There does exist a small minority that believes everything he says without thought, they are called the Tea Party.
This is not trying to find a middle ground and working out a solution to this nations problems. This is clearly a maneuver to further divide this country against itself. This has no chance of actually happening and he knows it.
Keep talking Paul Ryan, we are listening and you will go the way of Mitt.
