    Democrats have a plan, you simply don’t like it for subjective partisan reasons.

    And republicans are on the record for refusing to compromise, in addition to offering poorly conceived plans predicated on failed policies.

    One could ask why anyone would vote for them as well.

    Obama had a plan, it was voted down 99 to 0.

    I know Rand doesn't have a reputation for being the brightest bulb in the box but he should at least try to follow current events.

    The Democrats passed a slate of Medicare reforms over two years ago: Affordable Care Act Title Three. For a deeper dive into select individual pieces, see: Medicare Implementation Briefs.

    A few days ago, S&P released their healthcare economic indices data through March. Medicare cost growth continues its impressive slowdown, now 2+ plus years in. Still hanging down in the low single digits.

    Smart folks believe the exact opposite of anything Ayn Rand Paul says.

    He said that on the same day that he voted against the Ryan "plan". Paul's budget was voted down 16-83. The parties agree basically on one thing; that Paul's budget sucked.

    But obviously, not as much as Obama's.

    Not too mention that voting for Obama's would have garnered some favor, unless of course the Democrats were TOLD to vote against it? Think that happened?
