Article clearly lays out the 3 part strategy to essentially kill Medicare


Article clearly lays out the 3 part strategy to essentially kill Medicare. Part one is to pile on so much federal debt (via the tax bill) that reductions can be rationalized. To kill it via a thousand cuts over the next 3 years.
