Please share details, links, etc. Here is what I have so far. Truly mind spinning.
Rep. Betsy Markey[D-CO] told a gathering of constituents in Fort Collins on Wednesday.
~Some people, including Medicare recipients, will have to give up some current benefits to truly reform the nation’s health-care system.
...“There’s going to be some people who are going to have to give up some things, honestly, for all of this to work,” Markey said at a Congress on Your Corner event at CSU. “But we have to do this because we’re Americans.”
But, WAIT?! The Obama Admin. said that was a myth.~ ""It's a myth that health insurance reform would be financed by cutting Medicare benefits."
But then Obama himself said, "eliminating . . . about $177 billion over 10 years" for "what's called Medicare Advantage."
Ohh and David Axelrod said, "It's a myth that health insurance reform would be financed by cutting Medicare benefits."

I thought congress would have set those standards, seeing as how they decide funding. I was told by my congressman that they plan on setting new taxes to pay for it, paying for 4 years into a system that is not yet operational. I was told in rude terms by another CM that that wasn't true, but she is a know it all and seems to think the world of this administration, so I take her with a teeny tiny grain of salt.
The real task will being to get Americans to forget that our projected deficit is 2 TRILLION dollars more than they estimated (who can be that far off and not get fired?), so I think those numbers are scaring some into reality. We have no plan to pay for this, added to no money to pay for it. This should die on the Senate floor.
