Pawlenty To Obama: “Sorry To Interrupt The European Pub Crawl, But What Was Your Plan For Medicare?”

Governor Tim Pawlenty called President Obama on the mat over Medicare via Twitter:

Whatever you may think of Pawlenty and his candidacy, this is a good point.

Republicans in the House passed a budget, which includes reforms for Medicare. That budget got 40 Republican votes in the Senate. Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is saying “There’s no need to have a Democratic budget.”

Obama, too, has been railing against the GOP’s plans for Medicare reforms, and yet has put no Medicare plans of his own on the table.

Our nation is bankrupt, Medicare is eating the national budget alive, and all Democrats want to do is attack the Republican proposals to address those problems without offering any solutions of their own.
