Sen. Reid: Don't Cut Medicaid

Senate Majority leader Harry Reid has issued a warning to republicans to keep Medicare cuts off the table, saying democrats will not cave on cutting funding to the important program.

"It's time Republicans abandon their ideological plan to change Medicare as we know it and work with us to strengthen and preserve our promise to seniors instead of what they want to do."

Reid went on to say that democrats aren't opposed at looking at how the program is running and making it better, but that slashing funds would make Medicare too expensive for seniors and drive health care costs higher.

    Whats killing us is this SSI and Medicade for young fakers, illegitimate kids and parasites who live off the system their whole lives. Why cut senors when its the young parasites who are bankrupting the system. Throw all except the the truly disabled off SSI & Medicade and the problem is solved. Leave Medicare and senors alone.

    Of course Reid, et al, don't want to reform Medicare. Obamacare guts Medicare by 500 Billion. If the right pushes Medicare reform, the left will simply accuse Republicans of doing the very thing they've already done! What a bunch of hypocrites these democrats are.
