GOP hell-bent on dismantling public programs

Republicans have finally realized how much good Medicare does – and pigs fly. The GOP still wants to send the highly effective and efficient Medicare program to the dustbin. How does that grab the 20 or 30 million blue-collar workers, conservatives and Republicans who depend on Medicare as their sole health care provider?

Ever since the Reagan era, the Republican Party has had the goal of undermining and dismantling Medicare. This is exactly what they will work toward if they are returned to power.

And don’t forget what the GOP wants to do with Social Security. They want to privatize it, leaving it and your benefits at the mercy of the stock market. Two of the most productive public programs ever and the GOP is hell-bent on scuttling them.

But hey, don’t cry crocodile tears over the possible fate of your Medicare coverage. You can always side with the Republicans, the Tea Party and their insurance allies where the bottom line is more important than your health.
