Republicans Are Officially On Record To Kill Medicare [UPDATED]

Talk about killing grandma! Obviously I don't have the readers Think Progress or Talking Points Memo do, but tonight for anyone who missed this, I'm just going to share their articles of today's events because it's starting to appear that Democrats can play politics too. The video below and the articles attached are a hopeful sign that after 30 years of slumber and complacency, the Democrats are waking up. Steny Hoyer and real Democrats nearly punked the teabaggers into oblivion. But, Blue Dogs as usual, stuck a stick in the spokes. All in all, this week has given me glimmers of hope. I'm not going to get my hopes up too much because Democrats have a way of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Still, it's a ray of hope. Even a couple conservative websites said the Democrats flustered the Reptilianones on the House floor today. Finally, thank you Wisconsin. Their relentless pushback to Walker's union stripping messures have ignited a movement. I'm hoping Democrats see that "we the people" aren't going down without a fight. There's way more votes within the 98% than the 2%. Maybe, just maybe they're seeing that?! Please read:
