Tommy Thompson to Kill Medicare and Medicaid!!! See, We Told You.

Nothing says honesty like a cocky teabilly wannabe like Tommy Thompson. What an aging embarrassment.

Tommy said out loud what Democrats and liberals have known for years; Republicans wanna kill Medicare and Medicaid. Period. Killer video:

Tommy knows Ryan's policies will eventually bankrupt our safety nets, so... able to take away the litigation that the trial lawyers are doing, so that doctors don't have to keep doing extra things to protect themselves from getting sued, which drives up our costs; change Medicare and Medicaid like I did welfare -- and who better than me, who's already finished one of the entitlement programs, to come up with programs to do away with Medicaid and Medicare?  Let's block-grant what the state has, and allow the states to determine what's going to go into Medicaid.

And Medicare, let's wait until everyone that's right now under 55 reaches 55 by age [sic] 2020, and give them a choice whether they want to purchase health insurance with a subsidy from the federal government, or stay on Medicare.  I'm here to tell you, when you look at the situation nobody's going to accept it, because Medicare's going broke by the year 2022.
Here's Ed Schultz with Howard Fineman's commentary, good stuff;
