    It looks like even Moderate Republicans are trying to cut waste if McCain is involved. I think this is a good sign.

    I suggest we start by repealing the medicare package they just created two years ago. It still hasn't gone into effect. The Elderly don't want it because they have a better system now. The youth don't want it because its a drain to the tax dollars. Let's just eliminate it now before it totally ruins and increases the problems it claims to fix. That is a huge chunk of money right there.

    Dont think too highly of McCain. He's an opportunist and a media whore. He has caught a whiff of the conservative anger over Bush's nominee and is moving in to score some points. Excellent play politically but i doubt he had anything to do we the conception of this Bill.

    Oh I don't think highly of him either. He is opportunistic, like most moderate Republicans. So if they get a whiff of scoring some political ground with cutting the budgets, thats good! Because it means we are winning.

    the older voters want extended medicare. That's why the politicans
    handed it out. Vote for me, get your meds.

    And it worked too.

    I doubt that congress wants to piss off the voters (old people)
    Instead they ll cut something else. Nobody will dare to touch this and
    the Dems will cry foul and make cheap points to get more house
    seats.

    Actually the older voters did not want this medicare bill to pass. That was my point. A few special interest groups wanted it to pass. The goal of those groups is to undermine the medicare system in the United States to the point where they need to pass a "Universal healthcare" system like the ones that are crippling other nations of the world.
