serious question.... Please explain the logic behind such a move. At a time Medicare is already struggling to stay afloat, at a time the "baby-boomers" are entering the Medicare system and going to tax those resources even more Why on earth would Obama CUT the program by over $700 billion? I know why I think he did it....but I want to know under YOUR logic, what makes sense about his having done this? What is the benefit to seniors or to the nation as a whole in having done this? Do any of you know HIS logic for this move? I've never heard anyone, not even him talk about the "why" this was done. Can any of you explain it?
