    WTF- Elizabeth Warren wants to cut a part of "Obama care" siding with the 1%ers/ repubs/tea!!!

    it's a throwaway line in the article from Slate below about Eric Cantor wanting to put Obamacare on the table.

    Read the last paragraph.

    Elizabeth Warren is on the side of the repub/tea/libertarians in wanting to cut Obama's health care?

    WTF???

    Undo the signature legislation President Obama gave us that we worked 50 years to attain???.

    Why wasn't this known nationwide??? (It is now).

    This is a very, very bad start.

    Man, you guys remember when you voted for a party or candidate because their ideology/positions matched yours? Now it's become you obtain your ideology/positions, no matter how crazy they are, from the party you vote for.

    We're in bizzarro world.

    It's like... if Democrats tried to pass a "eat babies" bill where the government slaughters and eat babies, and Republicans countered that this is tantamount to socialism and we should let the free market slaughter and eat babies...

    It sounds kind of positive to me-Warren is willing to make concessions to get a deal passed. At least she's willing to talk about it.

    Hemmer asked how far Cantor might go with this. "All I can say is that the president has got to get serious," said Cantor. "The speaker is correct that Obamacare is such an expansion of government spending that it ought to be on the table." Unlike Boehner, he got somewhat specific about what might be slashed. The medical device tax, for example, and IPAB, "the essence of Washington controlling all that health care is about."

    Some Democrats, like incoming Sen. Elizabeth Warren, are open to cutting the device tax. But cutting back either that tax or IPAB costs money. Getting rid of them doesn't actually bring down the deficit at all -- it does the exact opposite. And in the past, Obamacare "on the table" has meant full repeal or full defunding. Never mind Norquist -- that's just not going to be a workable compromise.
    It sounds to me like Warren is running true to form here, trying to help consumers. DUmmies just don't freaking READ. Salon is being disingenuous by claiming that getting rid of the tax will significantly raise the deficit.

    Has she been sworn in already? If not she has nothing to do with this by the 12/31 deadline.

    That's the libertarian argument, not the Republican argument. Republicans would seek a compromise on the means of slaughter and the number of babies, while Democrats would seek to have it publicly funded.
