    Nancy Pelosi says Republicans will starve seniors

    Link

    NANCY PELOSI: "In one of the bills before us, six million seniors are deprived of meals -- homebound seniors are deprived of meals. People ask us to find our common ground, the middle ground. Is middle ground three million seniors not receiving meals? I don't think so. We've got to take this conversation from a debate about numbers and dollar figures and finding middle ground there to the higher ground of national values. I don't think the American people want any one of those six million people to lose their meals or the children who are being thrown off of Head Start and the rest of it."


    ^^^ Pull out the Democrat playbook and accuse Republicans are starving children. No doubt the Republicans are causing a Holocaust. See the similarity?

    Nancy Pelosi and Democrats demogoguing the issue....is anyone surprised?

    Can anyone say "death panels"

    See how easy that was American?

    It's not excusing this behaviour.

    It's your selective outrage.

    Unless we all demand an end to this behaviour from Both sides it will continue.

    The simple fact is we must choose between evils here. Either we take care of our society and pay for it or we don't.

    I think both parties are actually quite bold and finally bringing a fact out into the open that we all know is true but no one dares admit, "you're too old grandma you need to die already."

    Unfortunately, this is going to end up happening whether we go public or private. The baby boomer population is too great to support unless we cut funding for more expensive procedures that have limited effect and thats going to happen whether we pay for it publicly or privately. Either it will come out of a cost/benefit study by some agency or insurance company or it will come in the form of an empty bank account. Either way, people die.

    The propose cuts would lower the the number of meals delivered about it's not going to cause a mass starvation of the Senior Population.

    Well, if they killed off all the over 65's, (about 13% of the population), it would go a long way to balancing the budget, so I say go for it.

    Re: Nancy Pelosi says Republicans will starve seniors

    There's nothing wrong with a government funded retirement plan it just has to be budget conscious and reflect the reality of the situation. When people only lived to 65-70 on average hey retirement wasn't a big deal for a few years, but now there are more living for longer periods of time, and that combined with the literal life and death need of some people to stay on this program because either they were too poor to save or were just stupid with their money.

    So you got a few choices either raise taxes, decrease benefits or make people work longer. I think doing all 3 is a good idea but I'll admit its just a hunch, I dont have specifics. Of course I do know making people work for longer in life will only add to the unemployment problem and drive wages even lower.
