Granny doesn’t have to fear Romney

I write to the voters who are unsure of who they should vote for as president.

So for starters, I wish to shine the light of truth upon what will really happen to Granny if Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are elected. Rather than being pushed from the top of El Capitan in her wheelchair by those fiendish Republicans, as the Obama ad so hideously depicts, Granny will be just fine.

Assuming she is 55 or older, nothing is going to change regarding her Medicare coverage. This is an inconvenient truth that the administration does not want widely disseminated to the general public. And if Granny is under 55, she will have the option of continuing with Medicare in its present form or choosing a plan where her medical decisions will be made between she and her doctor, not by an Obamacare committee in Washington D.C.

As the old joke goes, “Are you going to believe me or your lyin’ eyes?” Don’t take my word for it. Check out Congressman Paul Ryan’s simple plan. Compare it to the 3,000 pages of Obamacare rules and regulations.

One final thought.  Paul Ryan’s mother is on Medicare. Do you think he would  deliberately gut the program and let his mother hang out to dry?
