Q&A: Do you believe Medicare can continue in its current form and still pay full benefits to future generations?

Question by Mike: Do you believe Medicare can continue in its current form and still pay full benefits to future generations?
If not won’t that end Medicare as we know it? What is the Democratic plan to fix it?
@ Dave
They are going to cut $ 700 billion dollars worth of payments to medical providers, not cut waste. Their cost control will only make doctors accept fewer Medicare patients, or tack on the lost revenue to other patients bills like they do now. Some day Democrats will have to take reforms seriously instead of using it as a way to win elections by scaring people.

Best answer:

Answer by Dave87gn
Obama cut $ 700 billion out of waste from the system, and now the republicans cry about it.
as if they liked medicare all along..

the solution is to control costs ( which would be introducing competition into the insurance industry) or raising taxes..
two things republicans hate..competition, and paying for stuff they buy

Twitter launches Vine for the Web with profiles, home feed, and a TV mode for viewing videos in full screen

Vine 520x245 Twitter launches Vine for the Web with profiles, home feed, and a TV mode for viewing videos in full screen

Twitter today launched Vine for the Web. The service is available now: just head to vine.co and login with your Vine account.

The new site lets users browse their home feed, view videos in full screen TV mode, as well as like, comment, and share Vines. You can also visit your favorite users’ Vine profiles, and share your own with others so they can see your posts.

All the features listed above are already available in Vine’s mobile apps, except for the TV mode. That one is exclusive to the Web.

You can enable it by hitting a button in the upper right corner of your feed or any profile. This will switch you to a new view to show you the collection of videos in sequence and in full screen:

Twitter promises today’s launch is just version 1.0 and that users should thus expect new features. “This release is just a first step toward bringing you a richer, more enjoyable web experience,” the company says. “We look forward to introducing more improvements in 2014.”

Vine for the Web is all about consumption: you currently can’t record videos with your webcam nor can you upload videos you have already taken. It’s not clear if Twitter wants to keep Vine focused on mobile or try to bring its apps and the Web version to feature parity. Either way, the site seems to be a good first release.

The new Vine site is a perfect example of how services are now being developed on mobile first, and then brought over to other devices. Twitter clearly hopes the strategy will help to keep Vine growing, even if most users will likely stick to the mobile apps exclusively.
