Today, I read a quote based on the Republican and Democratic National Conventions that says it all; "rarely have so many speeches been based on such shaky foundations." Reading and listening to the rhetoric from both sides of the aisle would be amusing if it wasn't so irresponsible. Both parties just love to scare, especially seniors as to what Medicare is and what it isn't. To what lengths will these groups stoop to get elected; obviously when you think that they have reached a new low, one or the other will stoop even lower than before. Why can't they simply tell the truth as to what is in their respective plans and what isn't, instead of allowing the other party to do it for them, all the while scaring the hell out of people? I can't wait for this Presidential election to be over.
