5. It's political more than ideological. After all, they all say "Don't Touch Medicare!"
and Dems don't like to point out the obvious contradiction.

The Rs know that getting a huge and popular program like this passed would be a triumph for a Democratic President, and they don't want to run against that. And they really don't care how many poor folks die because of their indulgence and greed. They just want Obama to fail. That's also why their methods make no sense. They are just throwing everything and anything at the man hoping something will bring him down. It's amazing what has actually caused damage. (all of it, cuz the media love to spotlight the bizarre)
