Email to the AFSCME Union

Tracey Coaty,

In regards to your email, specifically, “Shining a Light on House Budget Cuts to Medicare and Medicaid; the Republican budget plan replaces Medicare with a voucher system and slashes Medicaid spending,” YOU ARE BEING VERY DISINGENUOUS when you make this political and not about the truth and facts behind the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) (ObamaCare) as compared to the proposed Republican plan. Rather than putting out political propaganda such as this, perhaps it would be best to do real comparisons with what the democrats already gave us in the form of ACA and what the Republican plan wants to reform. You are patronizing and insulting to those of us who can research, critically evaluate, and omit the political propaganda for making important decisions.

Here is some literature that you can use to make real comparisons and TELL THE TRUTH – LEAVE THE POLITICS OUT OF IT:

How Health Reform Affects Current and Future Retirees:

“The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) will fundamentally alter Medicare. If its provisions remain in place, in the long run it will dramatically reduce Medicare spending relative to recent projections. This change will lower the burden for future taxpayers, but it could also reduce access to care for future beneficiaries.”

So, honestly, which is worse? Does the proposed Republican budget plan or the ACA plan, that was put in place by those democrats you support, make it worse for recipients of Medicare and Medicaid? Are you really for the people or for your political cronies? STOP THE POLITICIZATION OF SOMETHING AS CRITICAL AS OUR HEALTHCARE!!!
