The Republican Party, and specifically Paul Ryan have no respect for seniors who helped this great country. Ryan and his group of villains want to make healthcare less affordable for seniors, and if it is unaffordable, too bad.

The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) opposes Republican moves to make healthcare costlier with less coverage. Republican efforts to gut Medicare basically tells seniors to stay well or die.
