They've paid in all their lives, why shouldn't they? Had the had the choice *very* few would. I *certainly* wouldn't. Medicare also has a special place in everyone's heart. The government has made it pretty much mandatory.

IIRC the government should not be touching SS and Medicare at all except to pay it back to those that have paid into it. The fact that government is stealing from the SS and Medicare to pay its other debts is exactly what's wrong with government.

They already borrowed the money they are now not wanting to pay it back. they took all the cash (the crash) and gave us there debt (the bailout). We need more tax cuts for the wealthy , oh please trickle down please ,else I'm going to have to eat talking points, taste like chicken.

There are many problems with your analysis. "They" have no money to "pay it back with". SS money wasn't "borrowed", no matter what the cooked books say. I was simply a tax. Now that it's in the hole it's no longer useful to the lefties.
BTW, the "Bush tax cuts" were *not* "tax cuts for the wealthy" (who pays almost all taxes, anyway). They were tax cuts for everyone who paid taxes which, unfortunately, is only half the population.

Yea, the same ones that know how screwed they are getting now with Medicare(which *they* paid for), know how *screwed* that are going to get on obamacare. If obama was concerned about the uninsured, why didn't he just start by taking care of them and let the people that are happy and satisfied with what they currently have alone. Best of both worlds, but that leaves people with *choice*, something this administration doesn't like you to have.

I think that's called "the Public Option" with emphasis on "OPTION." To my way of thinking it means one can opt out and continue with their private insurance; choice(s). Win-win deal.

Yeah, win-win. When's the last time you tried competing with something that controls you, and owns the printing presses?

I'm guessing, but I think he might be on the receiving end of the tax burden, rather the competitive side that pays the bill.

Because you don't get total domination over hundreds of billions of dollars that way. His (sleeper Muslim/Socialist) way, the gov't takes over.

I can't tell you how relieved I am that the government, in its infinite benevolence, will allow me to keep my present insurance. After all, they could have put me in jail if I wanted to make my own choice, but, instead, in a spirit of freedom, are allowing me to do what I think best for myself.
Some would call that arrogance; The president hopes we'll recognize it as an act of kindness and a generous gift.

Since they have no choice, I find your attitude a little odd.

Excuse me? Are you saying that Medicare-aged Americans are NOT free to buy private insurance like they do now for supplemental coverage?

Is there insurance available for seniors? Are companies *allowed* to provide it? No, it is *NOT* a choice.

No, it is *NOT* a choice. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Yes, insurance Is available for seniors. Yes, companies are allowed to provide it. Yes, there are choices. They may not be choices you personally approve, but there are choices. When pointing out the flaws in policy and government, sticking to Real Issues is better than going after myths.
