They've tried to suggest you if you currently.
Enjoy Medicare you're not gonna get it anymore but you know it with the Romney Ryan plan it's been very clear if you're 55 or older nothing's gonna change for you.

You know by the Romney Ryan plan but they are being affected almost immediately.
By the president's plan because they won't be able -- care and you throw another thirty million people into the mix and you already have so much pressure particularly on the primary care positions.
It's not going to be a very good situation long waits poor quality this is not what we want and.
America it's interesting though because the messaging seems to be so important in this debate.
