Thats interesting of a point. Obamas cuts are proposed to affect the Service and Medical Equipment PROVIDERS, wheras Romney's (actually Ryans) takes an equal amount from the recipients of the SERVICE.
Big Differences therein, and once again an example ofwhere people embrace crap that is not in their own best interests.
Maybe, but I remember a lot of cases where well-intentioned moderate Republicans were demonized and sometimes defeated for attempting the same sort of "cuts" that Obama implemented.
I've never figured the Ryan's policies on Medicare were well-intentioned. And as a policy matter I really hope the Democrats successfully defend Medicare.
But I see a lot of poetic justice in the fact that now, after the Democrats have ruined so many moderate Republicans on the false accusation of trying to destroy Medicare, they are left facing an extremist who actually does want to do it.
And I see a lot more poetic justice in the fact that that extremist is using the same sort of misleading nonsense against the Democrats, that the Democrats once used against those moderate Republicans.
Hopefully the Democrats will learn their lesson, and the next time moderate Republicans try to approach them, the Democrats will actually talk to them instead of demonizing them.
