Game On

If I were a Democratic politician reacting to the new Paul Ryan budget, I’d start off by calling it an abomination.  Then I’d take the gloves off.

It looks as if Max Baucus, one of the less helpful players in the “Obamacare” saga, has learned a few lessons:

Independent experts agree the House Plan would make deep cuts to the Medicare benefits seniors count on.  It would end Medicare as we know it and funnel Medicare dollars directly into private insurance companies’ pockets.  Under the House plan, seniors’ coverage would be cut drastically, benefits would no longer be guaranteed and seniors’ costs would skyrocket. We can’t allow the House to balance the budget on the backs of seniors and we won’t — not on my watch.

Not bad, Max.  Sharpen it up a bit, and keep saying it over and over.
