The Tea Party organizations behind Issue 3, the totally unconstitutional constitutional amendment that outlaws an individual mandate for health insurance, released a video that highlights the signers of their petition and why they signed. They highlighted roughly four individuals.
About two minutes in, they featured this testimonial:
Government-run health care… will… hurt…. MEDICARE?!?
First, even if you put aside that this amendment, if passed, is a unconstitutional nullity. But even if it were, and it somehow passed, the amendment only addresses the individual mandate. It has no affect on the Medicare savings in the bill at all. At all.
And then there’s the fact that the Tea Party supports the Ryan budget plan which cuts and privatizes … Medicare.
This is what we’re up against, folks.
