SeniorCare under Obama-Pelosi-Reid Healthcare

Hat tip to T.D. for sending the following information letting us in on President Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's future Social Security and healthcare plans for our senior citizens.

Social Security

For the first time in history, the Democratic Congress will not allow an increase in the social security COLA (cost of living adjustment). In fact, The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation predicts there may not be any COLA for the next three years. However, the per person monthly Medicare insurance premium will be increased from the 2009 premium of $96.40 to $104.20 in 2010 and to $120.20 for the year 2011.

TAKE ACTION

All American seniors need to be reminded not to vote for the incumbent senators and congressmen in the 2010 and the 2012 elections. This means that any of the 435 Representatives and the 36 Senators who voted for any of the major economy-killing bills such as the Stimulus, TARP, Cap and Trade or Government-Run Healthcare should be fired by voters next year.
