Dateline: Classified. Secret Democratic plan to destroy Medicare discovered. After working undercover in an undisclosed location for several months we have learned of a Democratic plan to destroy Medicare. The plan is simplicity itself and consists on only two parts.
Part one of the plan is to demonize all Republican or other suggestions for saving Medicare. Ads showing Paul Ryan pushing an old woman in a wheel chair off a cliff for example. Refuse to come up with a plan yourself; easy since your plan is secretly to destroy it. Use Nancy Reagan's slogan, “Just Say No.”
While part one is simple, the importance of it cannot be overstated. Demonize, demonize, demonize! While attacking any suggestions to save Medicare you ignore the fact that you have failed to put forward a plan of your own. You also want the American people to forget that fact as well. It is essential that you not allow an adult discussion of the issue. It is important that you not ever reach a point of negotiations on a plan to save Medicare.
Part two of the plan is even easier. Do nothing. Do nothing on one hand and demonize on the other. The result of this is that Medicare will run out of money in a very few years. Since it is an undeniable fact that Medicare will run out of money in a few years and therefore cease to exist, doing nothing can have only one result. Yes, the end of Medicare. Stay tuned for Democratic after Medicare plan.
