    Medicare in his statement after the deal passed.  Not sure what he has in mind.  It'll be interesting to see.

      costs are so high. Part of what was done in Obamacare helps Medicare and extends its life for about eight years. They're working on a better fix which might include means testing. I don't know how long the $80 billion he got from the drug companies ties his hands, but at some point we have to be able to negotiate drug prices. I don't know what he has in mind either, but I'm sure that whatever it is, will be actions to sustain it.

    •  That's the sad result of conservatism (0+ / 0-)

      By their constant misusing words like "reform", we don't know if one of our guys is being serious about reform, or just masking a desire to destroy.

      Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.
