http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7wlkV8qWTk Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have calculated their Medicare lies so strategically, they’ve got Medicare Seniors “Surfing In Nebraska” – some are believing the lies. Somebody bring the seniors some water, so they can swim out the Romney-Ryan lake of lies Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are lying “like panthers” about President Obama’s plan for Medicare, knowing their own plan is to end Medicare, as we know it, turning it into a convuluted voucher system, which will cost seniors thousands of dollars more, while reducing health services. Republican Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal was on television recently trying desperately to explain the radical Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney Medicare proposal. He was more confused than seniors will be. He even made a reference to something similar to “Death Panels or Death Quotes”; perhaps he mis-characterized it but, that’s, in essence, what he said, that Ryan’s plan used some kind of death acuturials to put his confusing plan together. Paul Ryan claims his overhaul of Medicare will balance the federal budget. Credible experts have said, it will do no such thing. Now, they are in Florida and on television swearing to seniors they won’t touch Medicare, when it’s written in his budget, that he will take $700Bil from senior provider services and require seniors to participate in a voucher plan. Then they have the gall to lie and twist the President’s plan, claiming he cuts 700 billion dollar from Medicare. This is a BIG lie to get your votes. If they get in, they will wreck Medicare. Use your vote to tell Romney-Ryan – “Hands Off My Medicare”. President Obama will protect your Medicare. You must vote for the President, to assure Medicare’s survival. President Obama will use the 700 million dollars to strenghten Medicare by, 1) coupling your services with the Universal Health Care Plan, which will allow you to get more services under Medicare than you have now, 2) He will also use some of the money to set up a waste management plan to help get rid of waste, fraud and abuse, which is where a lot of the money is lost. President Obama, emphatically, will NOT take money from Medicare. He is not going to “Throw The Baby Out With The Bath Water”. He plans to fix Medicare, NOT end it, and replace it with a “Nightmarish” plan, like Romney-Ryan. Republicans have never liked Medicare, and have been waiting for an excuse to end it. Now, they claim the federal deficit is so large, they need to do someting with Medicare to fix it. Yet, they give big tax cuts to the rich, that add to the deficit.

New Nebraska Network:: Johanns Votes To End Medicare As We Know It
Now that would be interesting to know, since it didn’t get one Dem vote in either the House or Senate. Bob probably thinks it doesn’t tax & spend enough, so he’d be against it before he’d vote for it. At least the “Ryan plan” made an attempt at addressing the fiscal problems facing the country. Not nearly enough IMHO but a start. The President’s proposed budget just ignored all the fiscal issues period. Cosmic Bob has already defined his position on fiscal matters…”if you aren’t for raising taxes, you’re part of the problem” sums it all up. That’s probably the most honest thing he’s ever said while campaigning.
Candidates for U.S. Senate Debate at the Nebraska State Fair
“It’s a food, farms, and jobs bill. That’s what it’s always been. Now, you may want to make it just a farm bill. I think it would be disastrous to do that. I don’t think it’s healthy for Nebraska to say we don’t care about the food portion, we don’t care about the jobs portion. This thing fits together as a whole,” Bob Kerrey rejoined.
Nebraska launches Medicaid EHR Incentive Program
Nebraska launched their Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program on May 7, 2012. This means that eligible professionals (EPs) and eligible hospitals in Nebraska can now complete their EHR Incentive Program registration. More information about the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program can be found on the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Basics page of the CMS EHR website.
Bob Kerrey Will Call Your Bullshit
Kerrey’s handlers know that such oratorical jags may represent their best chance of climbing back into this race, but they are also painfully aware that he can come across as thin-skinned and defensive. That’s the gamble they’re forced to take—resting everything on the hope that Kerrey’s passion will be enough to win over voters and recapture the seat he yielded 12 years ago to Nelson, who announced his retirement in December after Citizens United made it clear he would face a full-on tea party assault. Kerrey has the "100 percent" backing of Warren Buffett, the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, whose family has held fundraisers for the fellow Nebraskan. But Buffett also told Politico, "I will not be doing super-PACs of any sort. I think allowing unlimited contributions to campaigns is a terrible idea and an important and unfortunate step toward a plutocracy." So Kerrey’s camp must cobble together small donations while convincing Nebraskans that their candidate came back because he feels duty-bound to serve his home state, not because he answered the call of Harry Reid. Only grudgingly had his campaign allowed me to watch the effort unfold in real time—though, thus far, Kerrey had been cagey with me, offering little more than side comments and polite questions. But in casual conversation with Walton, who has been covering Kerrey’s political career for the Lincoln Journal Star for decades, he was loose and unguarded.

Daily Kos: NE Sen: No One Called Me a Carpetbagger When I Came Back From Vietnam
In Nebraska, former Gov. Bob Kerrey’s effort to return to national politics is looking increasingly quixotic. The day after our last update in May, Rasmussen Reports came out with a poll showing him 18 points behind his opponent, State Senator Deb Fischer. And even a Democratic-leaning group had him trailing by 12 points in one of its polls in June. And yet, ex-governors have a pretty good track record in trying to win Senate seats, whereas Ms. Fisher is a mediocre candidate and her fund-raising has been sluggish. The race clearly favors Ms. Fisher — Mr. Kerrey’s stint as president of The New School in New York may not go over so well in Omaha — but I think we need to see some fresher polling here. Incidentally, she’s moving back Ryan’s age of keeping the present Medicare of 55 to 40. 55 must not be polling well. Also just claimed she wouldn’t vote for Paul Ryan’s budget bill.
A New Opportunity for Consumers to Help Transform Care Delivery
Since its inception, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (the Innovation Center) has announced a number of funding opportunities that will transform the health care delivery system as we know it. The Innovation Center was established by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to test innovative care, payment and delivery models that have the potential to reduce costs while preserving or enhancing the quality of care. The latest funding opportunity is the State Innovation Models Initiative, which calls for states to propose a multi-payer, community led integrated system that improves care, improves population health, and reduces Medicare, Medicaid and CHIP costs.
