Such cut won't hurt the rich politicians who take things away from everyone else. They get the best healthcare the taxpayer can provide for them. For everyone else, it will be harder and harder to find a doctor who will accept Medicare.

It is unbelievable that Republicans are still asking Seniors to undergo cuts in their benefits so that the ultra-rich can get their taxes cut.

They must think it so unbelievable that they think no one will believe it, but they'd be wrong about the Seniors and more than half of this nation.

Fine and dandy, except there is no proof to the contrary or reason to believe Republicans won't try to do exactly what they propose and try to take from the needy and give to the rich. At least, they have not backed off yet and continue to block proposals that don't allow for rich to get richer, and the needy to get needier.

Nothing to do with "lemming" or "kool-aide", just painting the landscape exactly as it lays.

What does the Republicans have to do with ObamaCare ? Obama and these liberal democrats in our government came up with ObamaCare and forced it down the throat's of the American people , NOT the Republicans .

And it's the Obama administration that keeps posting more and more job destroying regulations , NOT the Republicans .
The Obama administration has posted 24,919 New Regulations in the last 365 days .

Once there , click on "Newly Posted Regulation" and the scroll down .

Obama and these liberals are purposely destroying America, or at least trying too .

Which Republicans? Did you even read the article?

You know that the cuts are automatic unless Congress can come up with $22 billion just this year, or $300 billion over 10 years.

So what is your plan if you won't allow the "doc fix" to happen. Do you borrow the money and add it to the national debt, raise Medicare taxes, or just drain the existing funds so Medicare becomes insolvent sooner?

Cut what can be cut without doing further damage to the most needy. The military is awash with unnecessary overspending. Put the ultra-rich tax brackets back to where they were before Bush and GOP changed them. However, the debt ceiling should have been raised, and if it was not a black man in the White House it would have been raised.

Also for Medicare and drugs, the Federal government should be allowed to negotiate for medical service and prescription medicine, and go where they can get the best rates and prices.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has attacked Senate Republican candidates for wanting "to end Medicare as we know it." And in Nevada's hotly contested Senate race, Majority Leader Harry Reid is attacking Republican Sharron Angle, saying she wants to "gut" Medicare. But Mr. Reid has already gutted it. He and his colleagues did so by passing ObamaCare.

Actually they will get the same treatment as the rest of us regarding medicare. When they reach medicare age they go from the federal employees health care system to medicare just like the rest of us.

However, if you notice when they go into politics they usually are not millionaires but when they leave they are and as such are better able the deal with the shortfalls of the medicare system.
vote is vetoooo

Exactly. Those making the rules are the ones living better than everyone else on tax payer money. They don't have to worry about seeing a doctor or getting medicine. They don't have to worry about their retirement. Already rich in their own right, these worthless politicians want to make certain the rest of us make just enough money to keep THEM living the dream.
