    Seems to me that your time to oppose this would be now. But as I demonstrated early on. It's only sometimes that you oppose tax dollars collected for one purpose being used for something else.
    No, I want to see a bill before it is voted upon. Since Medicare is on budget how do you know that it is Medicare funds being robbed? Don't really care what was proposed but rather what the bill says.

    I did not say that regulation makes it a right. I said the list wherein you and Samhein tried to apply my logic to other aspects of society and pointed out the simple fact that federal government can, does, and should have a role to play in all of those.

    Now, do you want to make the argument that access to affordable health care is not something that every US citizen should be able to access?
    That would be an argument about opinion since health care isn't a right. I think we would have to agree to disagree on that subject.

    Did you bother to read the article or just the headlines?

    It's proper to place this situation in the context of Washington fiscal politics. The Medicare cut is slated to go into effect in fiscal 2024, which gives it the flavor of a budget gimmick. The chances are good that lawmakers will revisit the cut long before it goes into effect--and the budget landscape a decade from now is certain to look very different from today's. The $700 million cut is the equivalent of about 14 hundredths of one percent of Medicare's budget today ($500 billion).

    I would have hoped you were better at nuances.

    That's an example of how this guy thinks. Because the law doesn't say what he wants it to say, reading it as written is considered "twisted" to him. But twisting the law the way he wants it twisted is okay. Libs see nothing wrong with that.

    Things are starting to get dangerous when our president can decide that a law doesn't really mean what it says, but means whatever he decides it means. Now, if he could enforce that, and he's getting closer, we are in big trouble. Oh, and not just one party, every single person in the country, though many don't realize it.

    Didn't read the article did you? When would the reduction take place? Do you know what a budget gimmick is? You simply cannot admit you are wrong on any subject.
