Been hearing a lot about Medicare lately? Here’s a handy chart comparing the Republican plan – “The Path to Prosperity” – that protects Medicare for current retirees and future generations (while spurring private-sector job growth and stopping Washington from spending money it doesn’t have) with the Democratic “plan” to do nothing, leaving Medicare bankrupt and seniors facing drastic benefit cuts:
|Democrats’ Plan: Benefit Cuts & Bankruptcy|
|WHICH PLAN LEAVES MEDICARE BANKRUPT?||By doing nothing, Democrats are allowing Medicare to go bankrupt within the next decade.
||The Republican plan lifts the burden of debt that threatens jobs while preserving Medicare for current seniors & future retirees.
|WHICH PLAN CUTS BENEFITS & RATIONS CARE FOR SENIORS?||Democrats’ ObamaCare law created a “rationing board” that will lead to “the political rationing of care for the elderly” by unelected bureaucrats.
||Under the GOP plan, there are no changes and no disruptions for Americans over the age of 55.
|WHICH PLAN SAVES MEDICARE?||Democrats are spending their time attacking Republicans for one reason: the Democrats’ Medicare plan means bankruptcy and benefit cuts.
||The Republican plan saves Medicare for current and future generations while making no changes for those in and near retirement.
