Glenn Bakken: GOP ready to sacrifice seniors to make rich richer

To the Editor:

Expanding Medicare to all would reduce our nation’s long term deficit. Ninety percent of Senate Republicans and 98 percent of House Republicans voted to destroy Medicare. Not one Democrat voted for the Ryan plan. The Republican voucher plan will costs seniors an additional $6,400 to $12,500 per year.

Republicans want to kill Medicare so they can give more tax cuts to the rich and tax subsidies to Big Oil. These tax cuts don’t save lives; Medicare does.
