Cleaver Supports Raising Medicare Eligibilty Age & Means Testing – Ten Years From Now

Do you support raising the Medicare eligibility age? “I think that’s something we can consider, but not for this generation. If we did it ten years from now and factored in the savings, then I could do it.” –Rep. Emanuel Cleaver

Sounds reasonable, especially since the program is going bankrupt. But when you belong to a party that has conditioned the public to depend on the public teat, any reasonable suggestion is going to be met with strong resistance. Like this for example:

Why on earth should anyone in Missouri’s Fifth Congressional District who is under the age of fifty-five ever vote for this man, ever again? Barack Obama, Emanuel Cleaver, and Harry Reid are chickenshit poultroons who could have declared victory in Afghanistan and Iraq and used the savings to pay for things, like, say, anything other than wars nobody wants to fight and nobody wants to pay for, such as . . . Medicare !?!? But they don’t! Read more…

Gotta love it!  Just another example of Democrats turning on each other.
