If we truly privatized medicare, medicaid and retirement for people...then America really would be a beautiful place. Problem is...that this ad lies in the sense that the plan doesn't do that. Ryan just like most of the Rs are too afraid of their political careers to go full-force with these plans. "Sensible" my hide.
That's not Paul Ryan... That's one of the bureaucrats from the Obamacare Independent Payment Advisory Board! We are going to see a lot of this soon. Watch for falling grannies people!
An ad like this will backfire. No one wants to associate themselves with people who think this way. At least not normal people. I hope Mr. Soetoro is facing a humiliation like no other in history in November 2012. I want to see him sucker punched.
There should be an ad of the government pointing a gun at people, forcing them to give them money to fund medicare. That would be factual and true.
Look at this ad as an I.Q. test. It will easily identify those with the room temperature I.Q.’s that are influenced by this drivel.
It is amazing how totally divided our country is on nearly every issue since the last election. Oh, sure I know it started before---but now the personal attacks are more frequent.
Hmmm, private companies always make better goods and provide better services; privatizing sounds like a better idea...even though privatizing isn't necessarily the right word, since the plan calls for vouchers to be used at the discretion of the person. Certainly there will be government with control still, but Ryan's plan for Medicare gives people more control over the care they receive...
Oh but, liberals think government bureaucrats have the best interests of people in mind...let's see what they say when care is rationed because Obamacare has cut the amount of doctors and healthcare providers in half...
did alen greyson write this commercial.when will the libs learn that this kind of stuff is stupid and inneffectiveoh,oh yea libs are morons.
Guess, I have to disagree with most of you; and I think historical polling on which party is better suited on certain issues supports it. This is a good ad. My only criticism is that Conservatives and Republicans don't play the game. There should have been ads like this during the Obama-care debate with Obama's Death Panels herding grandma's into gas chambers. Scenes of pinheaded bureacrats with rubber stamps going through piles of applications stamping them DENIED, DENIED, DENIED and cutting to Obama speeches about cost-reduction and "savings." And when the Dems cut $500 bil from Medicare last year, this ad with granny getting pitch into the abyss should have run.
Only maybe 20% of the population claims to be liberal, but for the last 100 years the Progressive movement has done nothing except progress. The last instance of the federal government shrinking or getting more limited is the Coolidge adminstraction. The last time the Supreme Court recognized that "enumerated" power means enumerated was around 1935 when it struck down the fist New Deal programs.
IMO, Republcans and Conservatives think we are in some type of civil and intellectual debate with colleagues among whom are policy disagreements. The Left thinks it is in a no-holds-barred death match.
The Progressves make progress because the media and entertainment industries fail to expose the truth about legislation. "if it was as bad as you say I would have heard about it on TV." They do this for Progressive government expansion under Republicans (Bush & his Congress) as well as the anti freedom blitzkreig of the last two years.
When Progressives are about to get caught in the truth, the media will help them with stuff like this.
We citizens who want our country and Constitution back must reject all of these lies and deceitful tactics from the red and blue Progressives both. As long as we still have the Internet, we must use the truth to beat the political class. Playing their game is a losing game.
