A miscalculation, an overreach and a massively foolhardy and hubristic move is how The Nation‘s Chris Hayes described the GOP’s attack on Medicare. On The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC last night, Hayes wondered what the GOP was thinking when they tried to take down one of this country’s most popular public programs. "Killing" Medicare was not going to be passed by the Senate and was largely going to be a symbolic vote. But as Hayes says, "Now that vote is there just rotting on their lawn. And, they can’t run away from the stench of it."
