I hope these Republicans who hate the government will some day reach my age of 86, and when they need a cataract operation, have it without becoming bankrupt. Then they would see how Medicare really makes our last years on earth a lot better.

After honorable service in the military, a lifetime of work and paying taxes, I do not consider myself one of the 47 percent “takers,” but instead a responsible citizen who voted for Democrats who voted for Medicare, while the Republicans opposed it.

I dare these Republicans in Congress to give up their own health insurance if they want to end Medicare as we know it.
