Don't Like Michael Steele's Position on Medicare? Wait a Day.
When last we saw RNC Chairman Michael Steele, he was telling seniors that "we need to protect Medicare and not cut it in the name of 'health-insurance reform.' " Today? Well, today he's telling Fox News that "the reality of it is, this single-payer program known as Medicare is a very good example of what we should not have happen with all of our health care."
"I really don't understand how Michael Steele is in a position to head a major political party," comments Steve Benen. I think that's getting it backwards: The question isn't how Michael Steele came to head the modern Republican Party. They voted for him. He represents them. This is the group, after all, that was pushing end-of-life options before they decided they were "death panels." The question is how the Republican Party that once elected Bob Dole and George H.W. Bush as chairmen became the party that selects Michael Steele to lead their charge.
