Quote of the Day

"I am very much against [raising the Medicare eligibility age], and I think most of my members are. I don't see any reason why that should be in any agreement."House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, throwing some shade at one of the many bullshit proposals being bandied about during the absurdist theater that is the "Fiscal Cliff debate."

The hat tip goes to Atrios, who says, "Good for Pelosi. Raising the eligibility age doesn't save much public money, and I'd bet that it actually would increase health care costs overall (public+private). It's a stupid horrible idea. Which is why Villagers love it."

There is no idea too terrible for the Beltway media not to love!
