Anytime there is ever talk about reforming any Federal social insurance program, especially entitlements like Medicare, the New-Left in an outside of the Democratic Party and Cenk Uygur is both in and outside of the Democratic Party sometimes on the same day, they freak out about it. And call it Democratic or Republican attempts to gut the poor and elderly, as well as minorities, to soak the rich. Unless talk of reform is about expanding some current social insurance program and raising taxes to fund that expansion. So anytime anyone on the Far-Left, again both in and outside of the Democratic Party, goes off on talk about reforming a program like Medicare, don't take that with a grain of salt, but year supply of potato chips worth of salt. They simply can't admit that there are real issues with government programs and that sometimes they actually need to be reformed. That sometimes government, especially politicians over promise and there becomes need to open up those programs to reforms in order to preserve them so they'll be there for people who really need them.
