Protect Medicare From Paul Ryan

medicare-by-djembayz

Target: Paul Ryan, United States House Speaker

Goal: Don’t let Paul Ryan destroy Medicare.

United States congressman Paul Ryan has been fighting the existence of Medicare and desires to shut it down, depriving hundreds of senior citizens their right to affordable health care. With Donald Trump in the White House and the Republicans controlling Congress, his goal is in danger of becoming a reality if we do not fight him. Too many people rely on Medicare, and Ryan would be forcing them to pay far higher costs for health care, even if they are on a fixed income and cannot afford to pay more than they do.

We cannot allow Ryan to get away with this. Medicare is our fundamental right. Senior citizens deserve affordable health care, especially the ones with severe medical problems and low incomes. Ryan does not have the right to deprive them of such things.

The Republicans desire to take too much away from the working class already, to destroy the rights and the freedoms we have worked so hard to obtain for the past several decades. Medicare is one of those rights, and we must do everything in our power to protect it. Sign this petition now to demand Paul Ryan stop trying to destroy Medicare.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Rep. Ryan,

Your desire to destroy Medicare is selfish and impractical. For years, your hatred of this program to assist senior citizens in paying their health care costs has been well-known, and you are pushing your agenda to destroy it even more so now that Trump has won the presidential election. However, there is no logical reason for it; Medicare has helped people for over 50 years and it is one of the cornerstones of American health care. Nothing truly beneficial could come from destroying Medicare.

Please stop attacking Medicare and attempting to rob people of their right to affordable health care. Whatever flaws you may perceive in the system, at its core it is still a helpful and useful one. It is extremely selfish and cruel to want to dismantle it and force senior citizens to pay a larger portion of their health care costs, especially ones who have retired and are living on a fixed income. Stop trying to destroy one of the country’s most valuable resources.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Don’t even think about it! You have the wrong idea, and I know it. We all need Medicare, because it’s one of our important fundamental rights of health care. Politicians have no right to take it away. That’s unacceptable! They need to understand and get this message very clearly. And also keep their hands off our health insurance! This means business.

    Since when on “forcechange.com” are we unable to add to or edit the comments on the actual petition before we robotically just sign our names to petitions as they are written? Seems to me I remember a time where we could “personalize” the petition and our comments would be sent to the target person along with the petition.

    Paul Ryan has said that he finally has what he wants, and that is a Republican House, Senate, and President. Since they wield that much power he believes they can move Medicaid to the states as a block fund and when the money runs out, Medicaid is gone forever! As far as Medicare, he said that will become a voucher program. Nobody knows what that means yet. I hope those who voted for the Republicans are happy because the GOP have been saying this since about 2008-9. I knew this would happen. My guess is that Social Security is next. I am sick thinking about all the elderly and disabled people who depend on these programs, but the Republicans do not care. I believe the next four years is going to be difficult for us all.

  6. On IrishCentral some idiot posted a “Why we should support the GOP/Paul Ryan in the next election’ editorial …….Ryan is a disgrace not only to thinking Irish Americans but to the human race itself. JFK was no saint, but one thinks he would be rolling in his grave right now thinking about the current crop of miscreants in power.

  7. Maria Mahyorova says:

    I don’t understand Americans on this… When Obama implemented medicare they were cursing him. Now they don’t want to give it up. However, I’m not American to have a voice in this.

  8. Leave your hands OFF our Medicare and Social Security unless you want to commit political suicide!
