In his acceptance speech at the Democrat convention on Thursday:
The very next day he introduces a voucher program for poor seniors: Obama more flexible on Medicare than rhetoric suggests
In Charlotte on Thursday, vouchers? Never!
But back in Washington, [Obama’s] Health and Human Services Department is launching a pilot program that would shift up to 2 million of the poorest and most-vulnerable seniors out of the federal Medicare program and into private health insurance plans overseen by the states.
Oh, and remember, Paul Ryan’s voucher program for seniors is optional.
In his acceptance speech [in the video above] Obama says he will save medicare by lowering the costs of health care. But he doesn’t say how he’ll do that, and they only likely way the cost of health care under Obamacare will ever be lower is by rationing health care. That means denying health care to those his Independent Payment Advisory Board [think “death panel”] deems unworthy of receiving care because they are too old, too sick or need care that is too expensive.
