Government auditors call for end to $8 billion Medicare bonus program So... Obama makes cuts to Medicare in ACA... Dems could care less. Obama throws extra money at medicare to help defray his own cuts... Dems could care less. Republicans fought Obama's cuts to Medicare... Dems accuse the GOP of 'killing granny'. Now the GAO says the 8 billion Obama is trying to use to defray his own cuts to Medicare, is a political ploy and should be ended. I wonder if the Dems care?
