Harry Reid: Call the roll on ending Medicare

Posted By on Wed, Apr 27, 2011 at 1:43 PM

Sen. Harry Reid says he'll have the Senate vote on the House Republican approved budget plan to eventually end Medicare, slash Medicaid, slash all manner of vital federal servces and give rich people a huge tax cut.

A great opportunity for Sen. John Boozman to demonstrate his continued commitment to the welfare of (select) Arkansans.

If Arkansas Democrats thought like Republicans they would have introduced a state legislative resolution calling for opposition to the Ryan plan and its end to Medicare.
