    Actually it doesn't matter. A 0.005% increase in total medicare costs would eliminate the kind of savings we'd get from cutting this (apparently fake) expenditures. If you bothered to read the links (which you clearly haven't), you'd know that they did not pay $16 for muffins.

    It all matters big or little.
    No, not really. Until you hack down medicare, social security and the military, nothing really matters. We could eliminate all discretionary spending and we'd still be in debt for ages.

    If you added up all the small stuff, wonder if it would be big enough.
    Something tells me you don't really understand the budget.

    Id much rather pay 16 bucks a muffin that have the GOP vote to keep giving billions of my money to corporations that are rich making huge record breaking profits and just add it to the bigshots bonus's like BIG OIL SUBSIDIES...the GOP will give away billions for what they want...then harp on little chit...
    They need to stop trying to bs us
