The manner in which government works — or doesnt work — is not a pretty proxess in any country. But sadly i havecome to agree with Yobbo, it is a particularly ugly, and grotesquely inerricientn, process in the U.S.

And Paul Ryan's statement, medicare, medicaid, welfare are next in their tax plan. Medicare according to Ryan, the biggest entitlement of all.

I'm glad that it was killed, but how WAS taxing poor grad students, the future innovators and leaders, suppose MAGA ?

Does anyone get that ?
If so edify me on the reasoning behind that tax increase, please.

It is good it was killed, but isn't my question, how it got in there in the first place, what it was supposed to do, still the better question if the anyone's goal to make America great, not backwards ?

Ryan says Republicans to target welfare, Medicare, Medicaid spending in 2018

By Jeff Stein December 6, 2017

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told reporters March 16 that he is working closely with President Trump on health-care legislation. (Reuters)
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) said Wednesday that congressional Republicans will aim next year to reduce spending on both federal health care and anti-poverty programs, citing the need to reduce America's deficit.

“We're going to have to get back next year at entitlement reform, which is how you tackle the debt and the deficit,” Ryan said during an appearance on Ross Kaminsky's talk radio show. "... Frankly, it's the health care entitlements that are the big drivers of our debt, so we spend more time on the health care entitlements — because that's really where the problem lies, fiscally speaking.”

Ryan said that he believes he has begun convincing President Trump in their private conversations about the need to rein in Medicare, the federal health program that primarily insures the elderly.

Rep. Joe Kennedy III‏
@RepJoeKennedy

A week from today, hours after delivering a massive, unfunded handout to corporations sitting on $2.3 trillion in cash, GOP might shut down the government because providing care for low-income kids would bankrupt us.

And nothing within that news report notes he correlated Medicare to an entitlement, just that it ALSO has to be reined in, possibly as the excess expenditures or charges by less than prudent/honest physicians or health care services.

Was a 'Honorable Mention' AFTER speaking of the entitlement programs. That is seeing what you expect to.

So Medicare isn't a "health care entitlement"?

Fact is, it's the biggest entitlement program out there - Social Security comes in a distant second - and both are going to hit the wall very soon (Medicare first - and that problem is many times bigger than Social Security)
