Seniors get socialized care

I have read several letters criticizing Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers for just spouting the party line. She takes the insipid prize, however, for her primary television ads in which an old man is shown slumped in a wheelchair while McMorris Rodgers assures us she will fight against a “federal takeover of health care.”

Have all of her senior supporters opted out of Medicare to show their allegiance? Or do none of them, McMorris Rodgers included, know that Medicare is federal?
