On Tuesday President Barack Obama shocked geriatric Americans after a startling announcement: death panels are real and that the nation’s oldest, most vulnerable citizens will be cut off from the majority of their Medicare benefits in 2012.
“I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, according to excerpts released by CBS News.
Shocked Americans recoiled, expressing outrage and disdain for Obama’s vow to cut Medicare.
“My husband died defending this nation during World War II and I raised my three sons by myself, from doing odd washing jobs and then going on to work a state job as a auditor,” said Rose Blevins, a retiree from Southern Florida. She continued, “I lost two more of my boys in Vietnam and still, worked hard to ensure my last remaining son had a good life and he has, and I love my grandkids from him. But now, I don’t know how I will make it. How can Obama make me sacrifice by living in poverty after all me and my family have given this country?”
The sentiment shared by Blevins is one sweeping the nation, making us wonder exactly who have we allowed to call himself president in our White House.
Economists and political scholars all agree that to overcome this crisis, America must again turn the Reaganomics. During the 80s, America spent phenomenal amounts of money, yet, was able to force our greatest competitors — the Japanese, the British and the Soviets — into economic irrelevancy. Now, Obama is threatening to bankrupt America by taunting Boehner with anti-Reagan fiscal policies that will leave our elderly without Medicare, food, air conditioning and their social security penchants, a right every American over 65 should be given, by the edict of morality.
