|Reader: Black should explain Medicare position|
|Wednesday, March 28, 2012|
To the Editor:
We should all be elated that the Honorable Congressperson Diane Black is single-handedly saving Medicare for the burgeoning numbers of retiring baby boomers and future generations.
I wish Ms. Black would tell or explain how the elimination of Medicare as we know it is protecting Medicare. I call that the ultimate spin in a spin century. Also, just how much will this so-called protection of Medicare cost the individual on said Medicare versus the current system?
Finally, how will a change, such as that proposed by Ms. Black, or is it Black/Ryan, affect her spouse’s balance sheet or the insurance company contributors who have contributed $71,278 from her last report to the Federal Election Commission?
