    and the Medical Industry have barged in and are taking too much from the family and the government budgets.

    When did they get to be untouchable?  It seems the Medical Industry have no rules and our leaders won't touch them, no matter the greed.

    It could a convoluted way to ruin Medicare.  It is probably by design and planning that they have managed to cut taxes so much and the Medical Industry has managed to get by with their huge profits but pay low wages.

    If they vote people in who want to get rid of Medicare, they will privatize everything except the name 'Medicare' Everyone will realize that it was a mistake to let the Gop leaders get hold of Medicare but it will be too late.  Republican leaders like Ryan and Rand Paul know it will hurt the 99%, but they don't care.

    People need to pin Obama down about where he stands on Medicare and Social Security.  I would vote for someone else if they would primary Obama.  I suppose it is too late for that.  We need Democrats that will support our programs to keep Obama under control.  We need to pin down all the candidates even the Democratic candidates about where they stand for as far as Social Security and Medicare, etc.  The media won't do it, though.
