So essentially the President is taking $700 billion-with a B-from a program that doesn't have it to lose, to pay for another program so the new program won't "add to the deficit". What about the program-Medicare-that he took it from? One would infer from his approach that Medicare has a stash of cash and won't miss at all three quarters of a TRILLION dollars. Does it not appear that he's making that case? I seem to remember that in 2009 the government knew that Medicare was headed for insolvency, so the question is-who thought this was a GOOD idea?
