The Akin/Ryan Plan to Phase Out Medicare

For some reason, in the wake of the decisive victory by Democrat Kathy Hochul in the blood red Republican district NY-26, I feel like it's a good time to remind people that Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin voted for Paul Ryan's plan to phase out Medicare as we know it. In fact, he not only voted for it, he bragged about helping to craft the plan:
I had the privilege of being part of the process of crafting this budget.
And given that Akin is so proud of his role of helping to craft the plan to get rid of Medicare, I think we should do him the honor of renaming it the Akin/Ryan Plan to Phase Out Medicare.

  1. Let's figuratively hang the scarlet letter "M" around Akin's neck. This will be his albatross.
