Person on the Street 2: We worked for it. We paid into it. It's in your paycheck stub every time you get one.
Voiceover: Keith Rothfus praised a plan that would end our Medicare guarantee...costing seniors an extra sixty-four hundred dollars more a year…
Person on the Street 2: If you're taking $6,400 out of my pocket, you might as well call it a tax increase.

Person on the Street 3: Am I supposed to get a second job so guys like you can get richer?
