Dick Morris: Obama's Dirty Obamacare Trick

5/9/12


Obamacare was set to make huge cuts to Medicare Advantage a few weeks before the election. Knowing this would be political suicide to occur before the election, Obama postponed it to a few weeks after the election.

As many as 12 million seniors use Medicare Advantage.

Obama wants to fool a bunch of seniors in allowing them to go to the polls in 2012 not realizing that they will be receiving a letter indicating cuts to their plans a few weeks after the Election.

Dick Morris:

"One of the most cynical, dirty, reprehensible political moves was made by Barack Obama just a few days ago. When he passed Obamacare, he included $500 Bn of cuts in Medicare. Jammed it through ... But the cut would come three weeks before Election day. So Obama has passed an $8.3 Bn appropriation to extend that program for 4 or 5 weeks to get it passed Election day so the notices don't go out until after the Senior Citizens have voted and then they'll be cut. Isn't that unbelievably cynical? "

Sheridanbucket from Youtube commented this:

"The GOP needs to keep these facts in the news cycle, from now until Election´╗┐ Day, and not assume that ALL Seniors are well informed voters. The GOP, also, needs to let non-Seniors know who will be picking up the tab when Medicare Advantage gets reduced. One way or another, it's gonna cost everybody, not just Seniors."

    Seniors were sold out by AARP, so that Obama could fill their pockets. When Obama takes back that $500 billion, AARP is going to get their payback.

    I have a hard time imagining senior citizens voting for 0bama regardless. The $500B cut to Medicare has been one of my main objections to it from the beginning...that, and the vast sums of money going to abortion centers under the euphemistic title of "community health centers", all at taxpayer expense of course.

    Meant to add that hiding the fact until after the election is an extremely low tactic, even for the Zer0-bama.
