‘republicans and medicare’

Paul Krugman (NYT): Politico suggests that Republicans are in a bit of a bind: they want to cut Medicare — in fact, they’ve always wanted to cut Medicare — but they “funneled millions into TV ads last year accusing Democrats from Pennsylvania to Missouri of “gutting Medicare” and “hurting seniors” — charges that compelled older voters to swing en masse toward the GOP”.

I have to say that this was the great scam of the 2010 election. The fact that the party of this

managed to pose as defenders of Medicare was truly awesome, a testament to voters’ (and the news media’s) short memories.
