    give the average person a quick understanding of how much these cuts would affect them or their loved ones, I am really sorry to say that you have missed by a mile.

    Democrats always forget that the average American is not a trained statistician.  Hell, most are barely literate in the area of basic mathematical calculations.  And unfortunately for Democrats the Republicans are far better at taking their statistics and turning them into narratives (true or false) that an average voter can comprehend easily and quickly.

    As for what Medicare covers, you have some things wrong on your list.  They do cover things like cataract surgery in the vision category and a set amount of nursing home care under certain circumstances.  No dental though.
