Romney wants to save Medicare, not end it

What! Lose Medicare under Romney? I think not. Obama slashes $716 billion from Medicare. If you are on Medicare you already have lost benefits that were available a year ago. Under Obama you better not need any life-saving measures after you are 75.

With the Romney plan those already using Medicare will continue to do so; for the 55-plus group nothing changes. Those under 55 have a choice to go for the existing Medicare or a voucher system that is a far cry from losing Medicare. And by the way, there are many well-educated Republican women who are in responsible positions. The war on women is here all right. If we continue the way we are going now, our daughters and granddaughters could be wearing burqas with no more freedom than a caged dog.
