President Obama is ready to piss on millions of elderly Americans who are preparing to access Medicare, says he’s offering to raise the eligibility age for Medicare in the budget and debt talks with the GOP.
POLITICO has the details:
President Obama has put raising the Medicare eligibility age on the table in the budget and debt talks with GOP congressional leaders, a Democratic official familiar with the talks confirmed Monday. Obama said he would only agree to the change if it was part of a major deal on spending, and it demonstrated his commitment to taking on “sacred cows,” the official said.
Is this what President Obama meant when he said today it’s “time we eat our peas”?
