What the Administration’s Medicare Mailer Didn’t Say: ObamaCare Will Force Seniors to Pay More for Less
The New York Times reports today, “President Obama and his allies, concerned about deep skepticism over his landmark health care overhaul, are orchestrating an elaborate campaign to sell the public on the law…” So tomorrow, President Obama will visit Wheaton, Maryland, in an attempt to sell seniors on his government-run health care scheme. This follows the administration’s recent announcement that it is mailing glossy brochures to 40 million American seniors.
Since the president signed his health care plan into law, the American people have continued to learn about the consequences of a government takeover of health care for job creators and workers. In fact, small business owners will be penalized for raising wages and hiring new workers.
Now, the public is learning how ObamaCare will affect the millions of seniors who receive health care through the popular Medicare Advantage program.
Not that this is news to the Democrats who passed this law. In January, even the Obama administration warned steep cuts to Medicare would jeopardize “access to care for beneficiaries.”
Perhaps that is why the administration is spending taxpayer dollars to mail a misleading brochure touting the supposed benefit of the health care law for seniors. The brochure fails to mention looming cuts and higher costs awaiting beneficiaries.
Postcards failed to convince small business owners ObamaCare was a good deal and it’s equally unlikely this latest brochure and stump speech will win over concerned seniors. America’s seniors deserve the truth about health care reform – not benefit cuts, higher costs, and taxpayer-funded spin.
