Beck wants to abolish Medicare

Who does he speak for?  More people than just himself?  Is he saying what others have been careful not to say?

Beck attacked the new compromise and proposed a simple solution of his own — “abolish Medicare”:

CO-HOST: This is unbelievable, because the whole thing with the public option, is we were saying this is going to be like Medicare, they just want to make a big — make another Medicare program. And then they said no, public option is just competition.

BECK: And, wait wait wait. And I also said why don’t you just abolish Medicare, because it’s so wildly corrupt and out of control. It’s so inefficient, it is so bad and there’s $47 billion in suspected wrong payments, okay, in Medicare. So what are they saying — now remember, what we’re going to do — the compromise is we’re going to expand Medicare. That way there won’t be a public option, we’ll just — which doesn’t make any sense — we’re going to expand Medicare.

envy

This made me think of the Republian Party.  They don’t have a leader (well unless you count Rush or Palin or other ludicrous pretenders) and they are envious.  I think it explains the ‘birthers,’ the ‘tea-baggers,’ and the ‘health-care reform disrupters.’
