The Republicans in lamely attempting to sell their "Death to Medicare" budget are hiding/lying about the true ramifications of their plan. Because society has been so dumbed down, I understand the Democrat's need to keep their message simple and say it often. People seem to love sound bites. We want to put our keys in our ignitions, press the gas and go. We don't give much thought to what all must happen when we turn that key in order for our cars to pull off. Most of the time, this approach will get you to where you want to go. However, every so often, that "check engine" light comes on and you'd better pay attention!
