Catron: Obama Snookering Seniors Before Election

David Catron has a new American Spectator piece, "Obama's Latest Plan to Snooker Seniors".

He describes the fiscal games the Obama Administration is playing to ensure that seniors don't feel the pain of politically-unpopular cuts to the Medicare Advantage program until after the November election.

The vehicle is a sham "demonstration project" of dubious legality. For details, see Catron's piece and this related New York Post article, "An $8 billion trick?"
