Mitch McConnell, Republican minority leader in the senate, pretending he wants to save medicare would be more believable if:

* Many Republicans had not publicly stated they wanted to eliminate medicare altogether.
* He did not want to use all the savings from drastic cutbacks in services to give to billionaires rather than putting it in the medicare lockbox.
* He had some interest in reducing costs. Republicans voted to prevent the government from doing bulk purchases or negotiating discounts on medical supplies.
* He were willing to share the pain of increased costs equally. He wants to dump 100% of the increased costs on seniors who are least able to absorb them.
