DEATH PANELS?

Hogwash!  Lies, half truths, missrepresentations are being used to defund Medicare.

And, when the President or any other politician accuses anyone of being a Socialist, know that they are attacking you, your parents, your grandparents and your children.

If you want to know about Medicare, ask someone who is on Medicare how they like it. 

I have been on Medicare for over a decade.  I have had open heart surgery including two valve repairs, two bipasses and a MAZE  procedure.  In addition I have also had a hip repair and a leg fracture.   I have had office visits and lab work covered.  I had no problem getting the work completed by the physicians and facilities of my choice.

Please listen to the political commercials with a good bit of doubt.  Instead ask a recipient what they think of Medicare.

IF YOUR, YOUR PARENTS, OR YOUR GRANDPARENTS are on Medicare?

YES, YOU ARE A SOCIALIST.

For your information:

Medicare is paid for through 2 trust fund accounts held by the U.S. Treasury.  These funds can only used for Medicare.  Like Social Security it is funded through payroll taxes paid by most employees, employers, and people who are self-employed.  Other sources include taxes paid on Social Security benefits, interest earned on the trust fund investments, Medicare Part A premiums from people who aren’t eligible for premium-free part A.

Social Security’s Best Kept Secret

img_1558If you, your children, your parents or your grandparents receive the benefits of Social Security, you are a Socialist.

On August 14,1945, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act passed by Congress.  It was a social insurance program designed to pay retired workers age 65 or older a continuing income after retirement.  It also covers disability and survivors insurance.

It is an earned benefit. It was an insurance program where workers, through and with their employers, paid a premium to cover their expenses after retirement.  It was intended to be like modern day car, home, or health insurance.

Unfortunately Congress treats the fund as its own personal “petty cash”.

What is more unfortunate, bordering on criminal is that the cap on employer and the individuals contribution is $128,400.  That’s correct; if your income is $1,000,000 you will not be required to contribute to Social Security on $871,600 of your income.

And lastly is the fact that the security systems for our elderly, disabled and survivors exist no longer.  Children cannot or will not take care of their parents.  The state and churches are no longer taking full responsibility.  It is highly unlikely that they can or will be able to step up.

You’re a Socialist…
