    Yes, I think so. "Every year since 2003 ( all Bush/Cheney years, except 2), Congress has deferred" cuts "with backing from Democrats and Republicans" Cuts which were supposed to happen "because of a decade-old formula set up by Congress to slow the growth of Medicare."

    Passing the buck all these years to save Bush/Cheney's asses, and now screwing the elderly and disabled when they need help the most. I think this is what the GOP will do.

    Which screws the Elderly more?

    Making them false promises of support when we don't have the money and refusing to make adjustments until we have no money and they have to drop dead because of that?

    Being honest with the fact that we don't have money and encouraging people to make alternative means of taking care of themselves?

    You make these problems by lying to people amd somehow we are the uncompassionate people.

    Obamacare passed as a deficit reducing bill because it assumed the doc fix would not pass, and Obama refused to sign it unless it reduced the deficit, and cost under 1 trillion dollars. The Republicans take him at his word, and work with him to reduce the deficit, and get attacked for cooperating with POTUS and helping him keep his promises.

    Will the Left ever be happy? They are getting what they wanted, and are crying about it anyway. Does anyone not think this a new low for partisanship?

    GOP control the White House? GOP control Congress? Your Socialist/Progressive Democrats have already completely sunk many future generations. So I seriously doubt the GOP can make things any worse. Talk about passing the buck? Yikes!

    Screwing the elderly and disabled is a GOP family value. Before FDR, and after, the GOP always wanted to throw the elderly and disabled under the bus.

    don't take my word for it, look at their votes in Congress and the GOP Presidents who fought Medicare. What was life like for the elderly and disabled in America before liberals gave them a safety net?

    Keep plying the part line, and ignoring the facts. Obama is responsible for this because he lied to everyone, and is blaming the Republicans in the hopes that all the Obamazombies will line up behind him. Keep drinking the Kool-Aid

    Nope, the GOP passed the buck for Bush for 8 years. Now they want to make Obama look bad and are willing to see elderly and disabled killed to do so.

    reading and comprehension not your strong suit? or is your blissful ignorance beefed up by willful blindness?
