Top Republican: Democrats Should Help Us Cut Medicare So We Can’t Be Blamed For It

Gotta wonder if it bothers these guys that they are basically arguing against democracy. Probbaly not. Video at link.

--

Appearing on ABC’s This Week yesterday, Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) explicitly said that Republicans want Democrats’ help in order to enact “entitlement reform” — code for cuts — so that they could not be blamed in the next election:

COLE: To be fair to Leader McConnell, he’s always been very forthright, entitlement reform takes both sides — and then it’s not an issue in the next election, because they both did it.

1. He has been forthright.

We know that his only purpose has been to scuttle the economy in order to ensure that President Obama is not re-elected. Murtle the Turtle told us this himself.

Mitch McChinless is a miserable failure, and Democrats are supposed to be "fair" to him? How about WE, THE PEOPLE? Do we fit into the "conservative" cosmology somewhere?

2. should be "so we can blame the Democrats for it"

if anyone has trouble imagining how this might work, see the "716 billion" attacks during the 2012 election.
