View Diary: Romney/Ryan Medicaid cuts don't put off pain for seniors (89 comments)

  •  The longterm implications of the R/R scheme (4+ / 0-)

    (as opposed to plan) are enormous.  Seniors and disabled people financially decimated by health care costs will deteriorate more rapidly and will be unable to carry out some of the social and familial tasks they do now, such as child care, care for spouses, and volunteer work.  They will have no funds to support any other corners of the economy save Big Pharma and health services.  Their final days will entail a lot of government involvement, including police, EMS, social workers, etc.  There will be no savings to point to and the fabric of family life will be further rent by these social Darwinists.  They are bottom feeders searching out the last big pots of money to suck into the system that produces nothing of value and just moves paper value around while calling it investment and banking.

    Romney went to France instead of serving in our military, got rich chop-shopping US businesses and eliminating US jobs, off-shored his money in the Cayman Islands, and now tells us to "Believe in America."
