Top Comments: About That Senior Citizen at the Jeb! Bush Campaign Event

TopCommentsRedux

You know the one. From a Politico article on a Jeb! Bush townhall event where old Jebby! got howled at by a woman on Medicare when he talked about "the need" to phase out Medicare.

“We’re not going to have adequate coverage for our children or our grandchildren without Medicare. I paid into that for years and years, just like all these other seniors here, and now you want to take it away?” said the woman, who did not identify herself and left before the town hall concluded. “Why are you always attacking the seniors?”

“Well, I’m not,” Bush responded. “Here’s what I said: I said, ‘We’re going to have to reform our entitlement system.’ We have to.”

“It’s not an entitlement,” the woman shot back. “I earned that.”

Yeah, that woman. I've got a few words for her below the cheese curl.
