Update: When I read the piece this morning from John Aravosis, I suddenly had the image of Edward G Robinson toward the end of the film Soylent Green. Not for the human/food aspect, but for the concept that the perceived weaker elements of a society should willingly abdicate themselves for the good of the many. At least that’s the impression I took away from this:

Douglas Holtz-Eakin, Sen. McCain’s senior policy adviser, said Sunday that the campaign has always planned to fund the tax credits, in part, with savings from Medicare and Medicaid. Those government health-care programs serve seniors, poor families and the disabled.
