On Tuesday, Kinzinger and 41 of his colleagues sent a letter to President Obama, asking him to rein in Democratic attacks on GOP members who voted for the House budget, which includes a plan to privatize Medicare and cap spending on the program.
How utterly pathetic. Republicans take control of Congress significantly because they attack Democrats for supposedly cutting Medicare, and then those same Republicans promptly vote to slash and privatize Medicare once they are in office. Then, as soon as they get some blowback for that vote, they plead for Democrats to stop attacking them.
Could the hypocrisy run any deeper? Could there possibly be a better sign that Republicans are scared by the Democratic attacks on their plan to destroy Medicare?
With Republicans on the run, at Daily Kos we're thanking them for finally coming clean about their plan to destroy Medicare if they win in 2012. We're sending John Boehner a cake with the signatures of Daily Kos community members underneath it, thanking him for being upfront about the consequences of the 2012 elections. It guarantees we'll be fired up to stop him.
