Corky nailed what these "more choices" are really all about.

RON PAUL: "As a practical matter, this means that seniors cannot form private contracts for health care services."

It's Right To Work... for seniors health care.
What could possibly go wrong?

We all know that as we get older, we get smarter and much better at negotiating contracts for our health care.
Especially when Alzheimer's and dementia kick in!

If Ron Paul cared about seniors, he'd legislate getting them the same health care Ron Paul gets for being in Congress.

I always thought this was BS .... Why can't I stick with my doctor that doesn't take Medicare, but still collect my social security benefits?

IT has to do with keeping your doctor you knuckleheads; you remember the idea Obama touted regarding Obamacare.

Besides, its not much cheaper than Medicare, $135 + up to ~$450 a month ... please show me a cheaper plan for some one 60 or older?

That would be Executive Order #130 for donald. This guy:

"I don't think he even tries anymore," Trump said of President Barack Obama in December 2015. "I think he just signs executive actions." A month later, as contests in Iowa and New Hampshire loomed, Trump said Obama's executive orders show he "doesn't talk to anybody." "You know, it's supposed to be negotiated," Trump told CNN in January 2016. "You're supposed to cajole, get people in a room, you have Republicans, Democrats, you're supposed to get together and pass a law. (Obama) doesn't want to do that because it's too much work. So he doesn't want to work too hard. He wants to go back and play golf."

LOL.

" Many seniors need Social Security because taxes and inflation make it difficult or impossible to save for their own retirement."

Jesus effin' Christ.

Your source is absolute bull manure.

"Stroke of the pen, Law of the land. Kinda cool." (Paul Begala, an aid to Mr Clinton, said in summarizing the approach.)

"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." (Lord Acton)

"It's good to be the king." (Mel Brooks / King Louis, or someone previously known as The Prince)

So why do people insist on and keep giving more and more power(s) to single individuals? Because they think on some issues they will act in their interests?
