... a clip from last year, still pertinent.
Ryan's Republican budget would solve the nation's fiscal problems by phasing out Medicare and yanking funding from Medicaid, the health access program for elderly poor people and the disabled. Then he'd give tax breaks to rich people.
This criminal waste of resources obtained by wonton cruelty ought to be a non-starter. After his limp performance over the last two years, it's hard to trust that President Obama will stand up for the huge majority of citizens who would be damaged by this nasty gambit. But some Congressional Democrats ought to know viciousness when they see it.
