My Jon Stewart Moment

I don’t usually post about politics (probably because they don’t usually have much quality to them) but a recent article made a great point that I had to pass on. First, some background: the article is about the differences between and Obama’s plans for Medicare and Romney/Ryan’s plans for same. Simply put, Obama wants to take a top-down approach to controlling costs. Romney and Ryan want to let private insurers compete for the elderly’s business, but to support the whole she-bang with vouchers.

So let’s review. If you’re over 65, R’n’R think insurance exchanges with government support are a good solution based on free market principles while Obama thinks they are a heartless way to save a few bucks and leave the elderly out in the cold. If you’re under 65 and would be a part of Obamacare, Obama thinks insurance exchanges are a good solution based on free market principles while R’n’R think they are a bloated, spend-o-crat boondoggle with Obama’s lefty fingerprints all over them.

Make sense to you? Good, cause it doesn’t make much sense to me.
