Uniting Occupy and Labor Over Health Care
25 Dec 2011
Politicians are attacking Medicare and Medicaid on all sides--Democrats and Republicans alike. Obama's national health care bill will slash hundreds of billions from Medicare over the next decade, an act supported by so-called "progressive" Democrats. Soon after this "victory" Obama created the Super Committee to balance the budget, which included automatic "triggers"-- if no decision was reached -- that are now slated to cut $600 billion more from Medicare.

Of course the saying also can imply that the view is a distortion of what's actually in front of us. It implies perhaps we're not seeing what's really there or that we're in a sort of willful state of denial. Sometimes it just means the person is seeing things in a lighter happier light and that they do because they choose to as life is what we make of it.
