If Norma Dekker truly believes the 2016 movie, I have a bridge to sell her.

If Mitt Romney wins, we all lose.

Medicare will be gone as we know it when our children turn 65 and are forced to fight with insurance companies for coverage with their $8,000 voucher. No longer will pre-existing conditions be covered or will no-cap medical care be available. The doughnut hole in senior prescription costs that President George W. Bush left will be back.

Instead of a movie that is not truthful, think of your future and your kids. I do. Read the Ryan bill. I did and you should. Also, fact-check all the other issues.
