Reason: Peter Suderman: "Paul Krugman's Medicaid Myths"

Paul Krugman's Medicaid Myths

Progressives have a tendency to label things a cut, when one person offers to increase the spending on something. By this amount and someone offers to increase the program by this amount of money but its less then the other person, they'll say the person who would increase the program by less, is cutting the program. Or when someone says they'll increase the funding by this program by this amount of money and then changes that position and says we'll increase increase the program by this amount, which is less then we. Originally proposed, that somehow thats a cut, its what I call Progressive logic or the lack of it, when two sides agree that we need to spend more on a program, even if one side is proposing to spend less then. The other side, just the fact that they would both spend more money on that program, is all the evidence that. You need to know that they would both increase the funding of the program and aren't trying to cut it. Well anyone whose not a Progressive can understand that.
