Voting plans

To the Editor:

If you are a senior citizen, a gun owner, retired military, and if you plan to vote for President Barack Obama, you are insane.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, Obama has cut $716 billion from Medicare to fund Obamacare. For years, today’s seniors paid into Medicare on the promise that there would be medical care for them when they retired. Now, Obama has taken $716 billion to fund a health care program they cannot use.

If you are a gun owner, Obama just signed an executive order giving ATF power to seize firearms from people without due process of law. No warrant. No compensation. This what he meant when he told the Brady Campaign he was working to ban guns “under the radar.”

For retired military, Obama wants your Tricare premium to increase to $2,000.

Stop Obama from penalizing seniors, taking away guns, and hurting our veterans. Vote Mitt Romney.
