Fw: Funny: Medicare - they have a point!

This makes good sense!!
Funny: Medicare - they have a point!         

You're a sick senior citizen and the government says there is no nursing home available for you. So what do you do?

Our plan gives anyone 65 years or older a gun and 4 bullets. You are allowed to shoot four Politicians!!

Of course, this means you will be sent to prison where you will get three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating, air conditioning and all the health care you need!

Need new teeth? No problem. Need new glasses? No problem. Need a new hip, knees, kidney, lungs or heart? They're all covered.
As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you as often as they do now.

And who will be paying for all of this? It’s the same government that just told you that you they cannot afford for you to go into a nursing home.

And you can get rid of 4 useless politicians while you are at it. Just look how happy Mary is in the photo!

The best part of this program… now that you're a prisoner, you don't have to pay any taxes anymore.
Is this a great country or what?

So much fail here.

There's currently plenty of money for medicare. There may be issues in the future, but there is a simply solution for that: increase medicare revenue and/or change the payout structure.

Furthermore, nursing home fees typically paid for by Medicaid for those who qualify. That's the same Medicaid that right wing nuts all across this country are trying to avoid expanding and cut at every opportunity. Medicaid's enemies are easy to identify: they typically have an (R) next to their names.

Finally, the idea that prison is some kind of luxury resort is just stupid. Prison sucks. Its designed to suck. The only people who benefit from it are the private contractors who rely on that sweet sweet corrections money to make their living. If you're really worried about saving money for medicare and medicaid you should work against the prison industrial complex which is sucking the government dry.

I thought all these Tea Partiers were wholly & totally against any dreaded & horrid "socialization," so why are they upset because putatively there's not enough socialized money to pay for a Tea Party person to be in a nursing home?

Contradiction, much?

Tea Partiers scream about Socialism & Communism & decry that Obama is the new HitlerStalinMarx, but then they whiiiine that there's not enough money for them to get into a Nursing home on the govt tittie.

What it boils down to, though, is that the Tea Partiers are just *fine* for socializing stuff for THEM. They just don't want "others" to get the same stuff as they do.

Typical rightwing think tank garbled nonsense b.s., plus horrid photo of old lady laughing while pointing a gun. Rightwingers think it's a laugh riot to say she's about to shoot someone.

I may loath most politicians, but I sure don't have mastabatory fantasies about killing them. ICK.

Plus, wingnuts are the ones who typically vote for harsh sentencing and higher penalities for lesser crimes. Happens all the time. Then they whine about prisoners getting "free stuff."

1. Stop harsh sentencing laws.
2. Try going to prison & find out just how great the "free health care" is. As in: not so much.

As first Anon says: it's the US Prison Industrial Complex 1%ers (Wackenhut, etc) who are socializing the Prison Industry whilst privatizing the profit$ for themselves.

I thought all these rightwingers believed in "no hand outs" and "pulling yourself up by the bootstraps" and "pay your own way."

I thought Obama was the new Hitler for proposing "Obamacare," which looks like it might reduce Health Insurance costs (hopefully). Now rightwingers want to go to Jail to get "free" health care??

So have rightwingers become Commies all of a sudden? So hard to keep track!

Pass it on!

Round up all Tea Partiers and lock 'em up in FEMA Camps!

Is this a great country or what?
