Aunt April

It is a shame that our family is separated by so many miles. It is a rare occasion when some of the kids get to see their aunts, uncles and cousins.  Of course many kids these days don't even have aunts, uncles and cousins. As a matter of fact, some children don't even have in tact families with a mother and father. So I guess it could be worse.  We need to appreciate what we do have and be content.

This was a joyful time, when Ashley could get  a big reassuring hug from her Aunt April.

It is reassuring to me that Paul Ryan not only has the plans, but he has the figures in black and white.  It has been disconcerting to hear Democrats over the years claiming that Republicans want to cut Medicare and thus kill grandma.  You've heard it many times. They try to scare the older people into voting Democrat.  I've always known that this was not the case, but it seemed like no one stood up, held up their hands and said, Stop with this nonsense.  Paul Ryan does. Again, he has the facts and the figures...the real figures, not the 'magic' figures quoted by newsmen all over the country. One fact that we must face is this:  Obama's crew  slashed  $716 billion from Medicare to pay for Obamacare. This fact is from the congressional Budget Office, July 24 of this year, 2012..

Under Ryan's plan,  future medicare recipients will have the same plan as federal employees do now...a much better one than we the people get now. 

Things are looking brighter.
