Repub Big Blunder on Medicare

Maybe I'm completely out to lunch on the political pulse of America. I've been completely befuddled before by just how totally the Right Wing Message Machine has managed to sway large segments of the voting populace to policy positions that are entirely contrary to their own interests.

But I just have to believe that the House Republicans, in (reportedly) recommitting to killing Medicare (by turning it into a coupon system that no sane economist will endorse as even possibly workable), have just misread the mood of the public in a historic blunder. Even Newt Gingrich pretty unequivocally bailed on this plan over the weekend after announcing his quixotic presidential run.
