Medicare to survive

Posted By on Thu, May 5, 2011 at 12:06 PM

Sounds like the House Republican plan to end Medicare — endorsed by U.S. Reps. Tim Griffin, Steve Womack and Rick Crawford, along with a huge tax break for millionaires — is dead. (Well, at least the Medicare part. Repubs cling to tax breaks for the rich unto their last dying gasp.)

But we'll always have their votes.

"Political realities" cited by Speaker Boehner. Yes, the reality is the majority of Americans are not greedy and cold and they appreciate the security a single-payer health insurance plan has brought to generations of Americans. To privatize it is to kill it.
