Weigel notices a new Paul ad:

[T]he $500 billion in projected Medicare cuts that Democrats passed to pay for health care reform has emerged as one of the readiest attack lines from Republicans; even though, yes, the rhetoric of the Tea Party denounces Medicare as an unsustainable Great Society boondoggle.

And there I was taking this seriously:

Mr. Paul said he would raise the retirement age for Social Security and Medicare he did not say to what age and the deductibles for Medicare, casting these steps as the responsible approach.

Seriously, when Rand Paul is attacking the first ever serious cuts in Medicare in the health insurance reform bill, why on earth should anyone believe the Tea Party's fiscal responsibility message one iota? They're total frauds - Christianists and obstructionists in fiscal conservative clothing.
