    egregious cuts to Medicare/Medicaid so they can bash Democrats over the head with it relentlessly.

    Just saw the odious Mary Matalin on CNN squawking about these entitlement "cuts" which "do nothing to reform" entitlements.  Judging from her increased level of incoherence, I say President Obama must have hit the sweet spot.

    If they don't like this proposal, then what is theirs?
