But if Republicans stray over the line of public opinion themselves by cutting Medicare or Social Security, they will lose. Americans oppose Medicare cuts. Check out HillaryCare in 1994, Gingrich’s budget cuts in 1996 and ObamaCare in 2010 to see how strongly they feel about it. And they oppose changes in Social Security — see the defeat of the Bush agenda of 2005 for reference.So in order to defeat "Obama's socialism," Republicans should seek to maintain the nationalized portion of America's health care industry and all government entitlements to seniors citizens?
These two fundamental changes must wait until after 2012. If we attempt them now, it will defeat our efforts to roll back Obama’s socialism.
The irony is dripping.
