So we already knew that George Bush hated gays, poor people, veterans, muslims, and blacks. But old people?
Talk about an easy home run! President George Bush has proposed a 17% increase in Medicare premiums this year, to make it a 56% increase during his term. And now candidate Bush has opposed any delay of those increases Given the importance of the elderly vote in any election, it's nice to see that Kerry is on the offensive on this issue (see here).
I still remember what my grandfather told me when I was first getting interested in politics: cut anything you want, but don't touch my medicare. Medicare was what undid the Gingrich Speakership, and it might just undo Bush.
