Eliot Spitzer: Republicans Devoid Of Consistency And Logic

Remember when Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and the rest of the Republican clown show were dumping on Obamacare because it cuts $716 billion from Medicare? Well, never mind that the cuts are actually cost savings that don’t affect benefits, the point is that Republicans wanted to look like the great defenders of Medicare. Now as part of a fiscal cliff deal Republicans are looking to do what? Cut Medicare spending. Wow, that didn’t take long.

Representative Jerrold Nadler (D-NY): What I find particularly hypocritical is – we just came through an election campaign in which the Republicans were bashing the Democrats for taking, allegedly taking 716 billion dollars away from Medicare. And what is their chief demand? Take another few hundred billion dollars away from Medicare on top of that…

Eliot Spitzer: Congressman, you are making a hugely critical mistake. You are looking for consistency and logic in the Republican positions. We won’t make that mistake on this show.
