The most politically brazen feature of Obamacare has always been its looting of Medicare. About half of Obamacare's costs are to be covered with money taken from an already nearly bankrupt program for seniors.
Anticipating a senior revolt, the administration took action. It ran millions of dollars' worth of taxpayer-funded TV ads ....
But the administration didn't stop there. Instead, it launched an $8.35 billion "demonstration project" to postpone the vast majority of Obamacare's Medicare Advantage cuts until after what Obama likes to call his "last election." In truth, this isn't really a demonstration project at all.

If that is the Good Lord's plan for our country, I pray He lets us keep the House and take the Senate.
Sorta self-contradictory isn't it? If it's God's plan for Obozo to run the country into the ground and then manifest as the Antichrist, wouldn't electing a Republican Senate put an impediment in the way of God's plan?

Well the media makes sure when Republicans propose to merely reduce the rate of increase on spending that it’s seen as a cut.
That more people don’t know that Obamacare actually does cut Medicare - genuinely cut it - is a further sign of media bias. Romney and the GOP must not be afraid to use this. The Democrats don’t hesitate to demagogue Paul Ryan’s plan which doesn’t change anything for current or near-retirees, so the GOP should be equally aggressive about genuine cuts to Medicare implemented by the disastrous Obamacare.
