No surprise here. Romney announced before the NAACP that he would eliminate every government program. For those of you who think this is a good idea remember that Social Security and Medicare are on the list. Romney will, at the very least, privatize Social Security and that will initially result in the reductions of monthly payments to seniors. Romney is also in favor of ending pensions and will influence court decisions to move in that direction.
He will eliminate Medicare opting for a private voucher system. That means the feds will give each senior money to buy medical insurance. That is a great idea but what happens when the insurance companies do not have to insure an individual. That means if you have a pre-existing condition, as most seniors have, you will not be able to buy medical insurance at any price.
Romney's goal of eliminating planned parenthood. Good idea, right. Currently there are 1400 abortions in the US daily. Stop that and we would have an additional half a million people each year most of whom will come from low income or no income singles or families who will need educaiton, medical care, and eventually jobs. Then consider the end of federal birth control measures added on to that.
The only unbiased news today is on PBS. Take that away and all of America will be limited to the propaganda of the corporate controlled news media.
The quality of a society can be measured by how well it cares for the weakest of that society. All religions demand care for the sick, poor, and hungry. Yet Mitt Romney, a Mormon, has announced his plans to eliminate those very programs that protect and provide some care for the least of our society. What's worse is that many American christians support him.
It makes me wonder what Bible they are abiding by if at all.
If Jesus were alive today and had a picture ID I am sure he would not vote for Mitt Romney.
