I was talking to someone in D.C. last night who’s in a position to know, and he told me the final Catfood Commission report would contain a proposal to switch Medicare to a voucher system. (You might recognize it from the much-ridiculed Paul Ryan’s Roadmap to the Future.)
This is how the right wing operates. They don’t expect to get it passed this time, of course not. They merely intend to re-introduce this outrageous idea (Newt Gingrich first proposed it in 1995) over and over until the media minions have done their job and it starts to sound reasonable.
They’re patient that way.
