Re: “The Republican plan to end Medicare

Congress will refuse any major changes in Medi-Care for political reasons. Of greater relevance is the absence of means to pay for Medi-Care as it now exists, and here the logic appears to be fatally flawed.

The Ryan-Romney premise that the wealthy 2-3% of the population including corporations will (out the of kindness of their hearts?) engage in job creation. If the wealthy were going to create jobs, wouldn't they already have done so? They already have most of the available cash, and are choosing to sit on it rather than spend it.

How does Romney’s plan to allow them to keep even more cash provide any solution? The real crisis is the irrevocable transfer of ever greater wealth to the wealthy under the Bush tax cuts. The only solution is real tax reform, and the only alternative is eventual repudiation of burgeoning debt.

My only consolation, is that Ryan-Romney are revealing to intelligent Americans what a disingenuous policy they expound, and that the remaining 97% of the population, including most thoughtful and deserving Americans will vote their consciences.
