Everyone thinks it is a Republican going up the cliff with a Wheelchair that contains grandma. Well that Republican may just be a Democrat dressed up as a member of the GOP. During the July forth weekend when most of the Entertainment news programs are focused on The Anthony trial, the Obama administaryions says it is willing to cut millions of dollars in Medicare and Medicaid as part of debt ceiling negotiations. Typical Democrat party behavior, while its constituents are not looking it throws them under the bus or off a cliff for that matter.
The Democratic party voter will one day realize that the Polititions they keep votng for never seem to make things better for them. But party officals seem to tell the voter, “the Devil you kow if better than the devil you don’t know”. One should be worried about a devil who keeps reminding you of that saying.
From the NYTimes:
Obama administration officials are offering to cut tens of billions of dollars from Medicare and Medicaid in negotiations to reduce the federal budget deficit, but the depth of the cuts depends on whether Republicans are willing to accept any increases in tax revenues.
Administration officials and Republican negotiators say the money can be taken from health care providers like hospitals and nursing homes without directly imposing new costs on needy beneficiaries or radically restructuring either program.
Before the talks led by Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. broke off 12 days ago, negotiators said, they had reached substantial agreement on many cuts in the growth of Medicare, which provides care to people 65 and older, and Medicaid, which covers lower-income people. Those proposals are still on the table when Congress reconvenes this week, aides said, and are serious options that Democrats could accept in exchange for Republican concessions that raise revenues.
