I was surprised to learn that our congressman, Jack Kingston, has voted to change Medicare. After paying into the system their entire lives, seniors deserve peace of mind, not a voucher that won’t pay the cost of their healthcare.
The Republican plan that Congressman Kingston voted for will make retirees pay much more in out-of-pocket fees. Congress needs to makes improvements and adjustments in the Medicare program, but the Republican plan that Congressman Kingston voted for is to give seniors a monthly down payment for insurance while allowing the insurance companies to return to the old practice of denying coverage to anyone likely to need expensive medical care. A government voucher won’t do you any good when no insurance company will accept you as a customer.
Congressman Kingston has served us well and honestly over the past years, and I personally support him. He has fought to keep government out of our everyday lives, for example: he voted against the President's government run healthcare program that costs us 787 billion dollars and puts the feds in control of our healthcare system! I am proud to call Jack my Congressman, and I think he has done a wonderful job. Of course, you will have a few people, particularly the liberal left, who will try to bring him down, but that is politics for you! Jack Kingston for re-election in 2012!
