Romney/Ryan Catfood Plan

This is the Republican plan in a nutshell, or rather a can. If the Ryan budget cuts are implemented as passed by the House of Representatives, seniors will pay an additional $6400 per year for Medicare, according to the non-partisan OMB. That’s after a lifetime of paying for the popular government insurance plan through payroll deductions.

If that comes to fruition, the Romney/Ryan cat food will supplant other forms of nutrition in the average senior’s diet. If they’re lucky enough to be able to afford the cat food. The good news is, it contains some nutrition. The bad news is, most of what it contains is filler with no food value.

You’ll note it comes in handy pull-top cans. That’s because seniors won’t be able to afford both the food, and an opener for the can. Also be forewarned. If you cut your thumb on the lid as it is removed from the can, you’re on your own. Medicare won’t cover such willful and thoughtless accidents on your part.

Oh, and have a nice retirement.
