    Ryan went to 'The Villages,' much like the 'Devil Went Down to Georgia.' For those of you who remember Frostie the Snowman,' : Ryan went to the villages with a voucher in his hand, he told them there, you can get health care, and it only costs 6 grand.

    I can hardly wait to hear all of Obama's lackeys lie to the audience. Nobody with more than 10 live brain cells is voting for Obama.

    My mother is 93 and finally got some relief from the donut hole, thanks to ACA. I asked her if she would vote for me if I ran for office, and she said she would. So, if I decide to become political, I would take her to campaign events.

    Who on earth will vote for Mitt Romney. As an idependent voter, I dont trust Mitt Romney. Mit Romney has no core adn to this day we dont know what he really stands for. I have spoken to many folks across party line mostly indepedents that dont like Mitt Romney. His tax issue is a big one, his business record with Bain Caital and all of his foreign investments are too much for the American people to handle. Mitt gets angy when the American people simply want answers. Then he pick Paul Ryan, a tea party convervative and also a congressman who has been in washington and is part of the tea party congress who is curretly at a 10% percent approval rating, the lowes in history. Ryan and all of his collegues in congress only have one goal and is to try to defeat the president. The congress of 2010 did not do one single thing, and they all need to bee defeated. We Americans know that we must NOT go back to the Bush era that coused this nation to go into a recession, we will not go back..No BUSH NOT MITT. If Ryan and Company wins the tea party has a victory.

    The President may not be perfect but has got us out of the biggest mess he inherited, the great recession. The car industy is back on full swing.. Housing is picking up, construction is up...Retail is up , the stock market is doning well....4.4 million jobs have been created and the list goes on....I will gladly suppor the prsident and like so many people I spoke to, the president deserved four more year to continue to get us of out of the hole the Bush adminstration laid out for us....

    Let's see, the cost of a premium for 64 years old today is $1,500 per month. If you are 55 now it will be 12,years before you can hit 67. At a minimum, the insurance raise their premium of 15-17% per year. When you reach 67, the premium will be $7400 per month. Average social security recipient is $ 1500 per month. The government tagged an inflation of 3% per year. When you reach 67 and you are eligible for Medicare. You received a SS of $2,300 per month. Assuming Ryan is generous to give you a voucher of $5,100 per month, and you shell out the rest of your SS to pay for the rest of your health care premium. You won't have anything left to pay for even a dog food on your next meal.
