Brownback: Don't hurt seniors' care

"We can achieve incremental change in our health care system without a government takeover. The fact is, using Medicare as a piggy bank which can be raided to fill the deepening deficits that will result from such a takeover — and calling that reform — is wrong, economically and morally. A reform of our health care system is needed, but not one that puts us into bankruptcy and rations care to our seniors." — Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., writing in National Review
