Seriously, President Obama should come out against oxygen so Republicans would all suffocate. Here's the latest proof:
What just happened:
An Obama administration proposal to reduce Medicare payment rates for managed care plans was met with resistance by Republicans, who said beneficiaries would suffer.
So this president just proposed cutting spending, something that, up to now, I thought, I think we all understood, was one of the Republicans' highest priorities and, true to form, "if the black guy in the White House is 'fer it, we must be agin' it."
I'd like to see the headline in the paper tomorrow:
PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS OXYGEN GOOD
It would, it seems clear, solve a LOT of our problems.
