Team Obama Spends Sunday On Defense

Fox’s Chris Wallace: “That is the argument that the Obama campaign makes – that the $716 billion is all in cuts to providers and insurance companies and it will have no effect on benefits or services to the beneficiaries. Let me ask my question. Medicare’s own actuary, own actuary of Medicare – not of the Romney campaign – says that is impossible. That you can’t have the same services for $716 billion less. And let’s put up some of what the Medicare actuary says. They say that 15 percent of Medicare providers will be unprofitable by 2019. 25 percent of Medicare providers will be unprofitable by 2030.


RNC Launches Obama’s Countdown to Medicare Bankruptcy Timeline

WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee launches “Countdown to Medicare Bankruptcy Timeline” marking the time until the Medicare Trust Fund is exhausted and highlighting the timeline of President Obama’s own promises and words. Medicare is on track to go bankrupt in 2024 and while Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan have solutions, President Obama has offered zero plans to fix one of America’s greatest problems and has touted $716 billion dollar cuts to the program as an ‘achievement.’

Then and Now: Estimated Cost of Braley’s Healthcare Takeover Continues to Rise, Along With Cuts to Medicare

WASHINGTON — Nancy Pelosi famously said that seniors and families wouldn’t know what was in Bruce Braley’s big-government takeover of healthcare until Washington Democrats passed it. Now that Democrats have paid dearly to keep ObamaCare the law of the land, the new cost and cut estimates are making one thing crystal clear: Braley’s healthcare overhaul is draining families’ pocketbooks and gutting seniors’ Medicare.


Speaker of the House

No Leadership: POTUS Has No Plan to Create Jobs, Save Medicare, Protect Defense

President Obama may think his plan “worked” and the private sector is “doing fine,” but unemployment rose in 44 states last month and has been higher than eight percent nationally for 42 months. And even though Americans aren’t pleased with his policies, he now wants to raise taxes on small businesses and destroy another 700,000 jobs.

Answering only “ridiculous questions,” pursuing higher taxes, and protecting unpopular laws like ObamaCare (that hurt Medicare and make it harder for small businesses to hire) shows Democrats aren’t serious about jobs or our economy.


Americans Give POTUS “Poor Marks” on Jobs, Economy as Tax Hikes Loom
