But apparently seniors would rather see our deficit and debt raise before they would pay higher medical costs.
    Ah, now slowly trying to reduce the number of people on it to eventually remove it is far different than not liking it but feeling we need it so it should stay.

    And just look at BushCare Part D (Medicare Part D)... what a bunch of morons we have in office. If that doesn't show people how politicians didn't care about our deficits and instead cared about senior votes... nothing will. And all they still care about is votes. Why else would they add an entitlement to an already failing program? Where were the Tea Parties on this one?
    Not going to get into the long winded thing of this, AGAIN, in another thread. Especially since it will derail it because this isn't about Tea Parties. So here's the general answer. First, many conservatives/republicans were annoyed at Medicare Part D. Second, human nature (and political theory) generally has groups of people complaining or voicing concern in a different manner when someone close to them does something wrong and when someone they dislike does it. Your sister ends up cheating on her boyfriend you're somewhat friends with, you have a stern talk with about how that's wrong and put you in a tough spot. If some guy you can't stand cheats on your sister you're likely to get in a much more vocal confrontation. Does that mean you condone cheating in one case and not the other? No, it just means people react differently to different situations based on what they wanted accomplished. In politics loud, public complaints about your party while its in power is actually detrimental to your goals, which is to get your views put in government, because more often than not rather than changing your sides views it simply causes the other side to get elected in. Then instead of someone that does 3 things you dislike out of 10 you have someone doing those same 3, and 6 more on top of it. Even your "propogandist, extreme right" individuals like Rush and Hannity complained about Medicare Part D. You would have a point if there was NO annoyance by Republicans/Conservatives about it, but there was. It simply was expressed differently, something that is true for decades upon decades for both political parties and humans in general.

    Interesting point. I never really thought about that. Makes sense. But it would have been nice to see mass protests to Part D before it got added... now no one will be able to cut it out of Medicare, because now seniors will become dependent on it..

    FOX = Far Right to Extreme Right

    ABC = Left to Right (found to have the widest range but never to much center)

    PBS = Center to Left

    CNN = Center Left to Left

    NBC = Left to Far Left

    CBS = Left to Far Left

    MSNBC = Far Left


    Talk Radio = Far Right to Extreme Far Right



    Well looks like my data for the most part stays the same. Some disagree with the terms far and extreme but overall my findings are refected just about dead on.Thanks guys!

    Fox is the Republican party news organization that hires and pays the Republican party faithfuls and gives them work after they are done serving the party.Rove, Huckabe thats all I can think of now. On the left and the right tho- There is less than 20 degrees seperation between any Anchor or Host or news orginazation on any news channel- The main ones, from a political party or former government employement Thats Bias. The press is
    NOT FREE- Thats how big the government is!
