"… all the ‘deficit hawks’ out there who are deeply concerned about too much borrowing and the terrible choices our grandchildren will confront might want to write a letter of thanks to one Barack Hussein Obama…. The reasons for the slowdown [in the deficit] in Medicare spending are complicated. But a big part of it is — you guessed it — the Affordable Care Act. The ACA has found direct savings in Medicare with things like cuts to some provider payments…. Medicare is still the biggest driver of future deficits, but the next time you hear a conservative say we have to ‘rein in entitlements,’ you can remind them that nothing any president has done to achieve that goal has been nearly as effective as the reforms contained within the hated Obamacare.” - Paul Waldman in the Washington Post
You will never hear a Republican/Conservative say thank-you. They are too caught up in a hate-spiral of name-calling and victim-blaming.
