When Walker makes cuts to Badgercare Providers, he's a taxpayers friend. When Obama does it, he's killing Medicare.

I thought this headline was a bit odd in Forbes:
“In Wisconsin, Obamacare to Increase Individual Insurance Premiums by 30%, Says Obama Adviser”
Turns out, the increase covers 4 years, which means they've got nothing to really complain about. A 6 percent increase in premiums is low. But then, I know something about health care.
One of Obama’s key health-care advisers, Jonathan Gruber, found that by 2016, individual premiums in Wisconsin will increase by an average of 30 percent.
But check this amazing complaint about the cuts Medicare makes to providers:
In addition, Obamacare will deeply cut Medicare Advantage … And 27 percent of Wisconsin physicians say that they will place new or additional limits on accepting Medicare patients.
But the guy who wrote this whiny trash, outside adviser to the Romney campaign on health care issues Avik Roy, should first ask Gov. Scott Walker why Medicaid (Badgercare) providers are dropping coverage in the state. Could it be because Walker also made cuts to health care providers to hold down costs? Just asking.
