Reader: Black should explain Medicare position

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 spouses balance sheet or the insurance company contributors who have contributed $71,278 from her last report to the Federal Election Commission?
