Now that this tax thing is going to happen, looking forward to the future discussions on Medicare/Medicaid cuts from the resulting debt. Starve the beast™, all going as planned.

skàl, you know as well as i do, that there has been huffing and chest pumping about reforming, modifying social security, Medicare and Medicaid for decades and nothing gets done. . best chance was 2001/2002 and nothing happened except bullshìt. .

They are sacred cows to the democrats and they aren't going to let anything change them. period. . so unless the republicans are at a 2/3 majority in both houses of Congress and the presidency, it's just rhetoric and more bullshìt.
