Obama Tells America He’ll Cut Medicare and Medicaid to Pay for Obamacare.

President Obama is really irritating in the way he makes vague claims about how he’s going to create a national health care plan that everyone can afford and how it’s going to be this great utopia where you won’t have to wait in line, and it’ll be free, and you’ll get the best medical care possible. You’ve really got to suspend belief when you’re listening to him. It’s the kind of stuff I might have believed when I was fourteen but I think, by the time I went into the U.S. Army, I was entirely cured.

Obama told America today that he was going to pay for the new public health care benefits by cutting out unnecessary payments to Medicare and Medicaid.

No mention about what these “unnecessary” payments were. You’d think there’d be a tremendous outcry but the sheep are still out in the pasture as Obama escapes the stage without taking a single question.

Americans need to wake up. If Obama’s going to cut Medicare and Medicaid, then he ought to tell us what parts of it he’s going to cut. I imagine someone right now is making a list of medical tests that won’t be paid for and medical procedures which won’t be approved and this same list will be passed on to the New Obamacare Program just so the president can appear to have done something.
