@oralloy,
The GOP just approved legislation to cut $1.5 trillion from Medicare to give bigger tax cuts to the rich. Hope you are one of the wealthy people getting a tax cut.

@cicerone imposter,
The fact that they approved greater debt does not mean they are taking that money from Medicare.

On the other hand Obama and the Democrats actually looted half a trillion dollars from Medicare in reality.

@oralloy,
They cut the funding of Medicare by $1.5 trillion dollars. https://www.commondreams.org/news/2017/10/19/51-gop-senators-just-voted-cut-15-trillion-medicare-and-medicaid-give-super-rich-and

People like you are duped into thinking the GOP is out there to help the middle class, because you do not do your homework. There are plenty of articles about the GOP and their tax reform plans.

In the first place, they tried to repeal ACA/Obamacare, but failed, because even many republicans in congress understand that the majority of Americans like ACA/Obamacare. Without it, over 22 million Americans will be without health insurance. That's the estimate by the Office of Management and Budget. They know what they are talking about; you don't.

@cicerone imposter,
No they didn't.

But Barak Obama and the Democrats did cut Medicare by half a trillion.

@oralloy,
I remember that. They tossed out two numbers (34x billion & 4xx billion) in Medicare savings that would help pay for the ACA. That was MY Medicare, and I will mention that AARP thought that was a swell idea. I am no longer a member of AARP, by the way

To the extent that the savings might come from Medicare fraud, I have often asked myself why they needed ACA to eliminate fraud. They should have been doing that, anyway.

Just for what it's worth, I have always had more faith in CBO than OBM.
