"There was telling moment during the CNN Republican presidential debate: Asked about the possibility of repealing George W. Bush's Medicare prescription-drug benefit, which is adding some $17 trillion to Medicare's unfunded liabilities, every one of the candidates pledged varying degrees of fealty to the program. No one came out for significantly cutting this vestige of Bush-style big-government conservatism, let alone repealing it. This put the current crop of Republicans to the left of John McCain, who at least campaigned in favor of means-testing the program in 2008." (09/28/11)
