    David Cutler weighs in today on a recent study he authored with two other Harvard economists, which apparently has gotten some fame recently via distorted third-hand accounts of it circulating in the rightwing blogosphere.

    Oh hey.....he's pissed.

    His conclusions are being used in a way he does not like and he calls it misusing.

    Blah blah blah.

    All people need to know is that Obama raped Medicare for $716 billion to make Obamacare look cheaper than it really is.

    That is a whole lot of hip replacements.

    We are getting the word out to Granny right now!

    And he advocates for free market solutions.

    That is the exchange idea.

    So why not just lift government regs and screw the exchanges.
