Q from Brokaw: health care, energy, entitlement reform: Which is the top priority?
[Nice to have a multimillionaire questioner who assumes that reducing Social Security and Medicare is a national priority on the level of health care and energy.] McCain refuses question: we can do all three. Must cut entitlements, Reaching across the aisle.
Obama: priotitize. I’ve stated mine. Energy, linked to national security. Free of dependence on Middle Eastern oil in 10 years. No, I don’t know how. Health care. Education.
Why isn’t he hitting McCain on wanting to cut Medicare?
Obama: tax cuts are like spending. [Hurrah!]
