I generally feel that the left are going to point out that it seem 'hypocritical' to take on healthcare but not these other programs. We should just take that argument away from them and attempt to remove these from the public dole. Don't force politicians to take this on but work on the local level to convince people to knock these down. Stay in young urban areas where there are no old people who will naturally object. Even if we don't succeed at least we can say that it is them that stands in our way of taking these down and not our selective choice over which we hate more.
