yes ignorance is bad.
Whoop, Whoop! Ignorance alert. EVERY reputable source proves that implication to be a lie. In fact, it re-directs that $716B or so from Medicare Plus
insurance subsidies and providers to fill the donut hole REPUBLICANS created in their unpaid for Medicare Part D drug benefit. The undeniable fact
easily learned by anyone who cares for fact and is intellectually honest, is that this money re-routes directly to plug the "donut hole," resulting in
LESS costs for seniors.
Anyone who asserts otherwise is either uninformed an spouting gibberish or intentionally lying, neither of these is an admirable character trait.
Have the balls to be honest even when the facts don't favor your candidate. I am, will and do.
...Oh, and by the way, Ryan's plan makes those EXACT same cuts from the growth of medicare, BUT it directs those savings DIRECTLY in to the pockets of
the uber rich, leaving the donut hole open and costing seniors much more. That's also a fact.
If you are gonna play in the sandbox of ideas and debate, at least try not to embarrass yourself by not being prepared because you are too lazy to get
to the facts.
