Promises broken

The Associated Press reports more than three million seniors may have to switch their Medicare prescription plan next year, even if they are perfectly happy with it.

This- thanks to the federal government simplifying their lives.

The policy change could turn into a hassle for seniors who had not intended to switch plans during Medicare's open enrollment season this fall.

The flies in the face of the Obamacare promise that was made during the heated health care debate.

That promise- no changes to your Medicare drug plan.

A new study by a research group says three million seniors will have their current drug plan scrapped, as Medicare cuts down duplicative services in order to give more meaningful choices.

That's what Avalere health says. There will be fewer choices. It's so simple.

Seniors will not lose Medicare, but there could be what is called disruptive changes to their plans.

Medicare officials poo-poo'd the findings.

The research group says they used Medicare guidelines.

As many as 3.7 million Medicare recipients may have to switch plans.

That is about 20% of the 17.5 million enrolled in stand-alone drug plans.

And nothing was supposed to change.

Just one more instance where Doctors Obama, Pelosiand Reid put on the rubber gloves to practice their politcal proctology upon us. Like most Doctors who are educated in Liberal Institutions, once they graduate and open up their practice,it is YOU they practice on until they get good at it. Some like these three never do, and they bury their mistakes, i.e.the American Republic buried in debt.

Truth seen too late voters. Vote wisely in November.

After more than 18 months of the tenure of this administration you still sound surprised to find Obama lies. He lied about transparency, about lobbiest, about tax increases, job creation, the stimulus plan, gitmo, the economy, immigration reform, blaming the GOP for logjams in congress when he needs not the 1st Repub vote to do anything. We can believe nothing the man says. The only thing I can put my finger on about which he has been consistant is his goal of income redistribution.
