Sauce For The Goose

An old saying I used to hear around the house was "Sauce for the Goose is sauce for the gander."

Or, "What goes around, comes around."

It seems that President Trump is proposing cuts to Medicade, Medicare, and other entitlement programs.  Oh, the Dems are up in arms, and want Congress to reign him in, but it seems that others have been doing the same thing for years.  Executive over-reach is executive over-reach, regardless of who does it.  But, the current poster-boy for executive over-reach has a particularly short memory.

First, there was this:
2013: John Kasich circumvents Ohio's legislature, unilaterally puts hundreds of thousands of able-bodied, working-age, childless adults on Medicaid
Now, there is this:
2019: Kasich becomes a comically fake crusader against executive overreach
It it is okay for an executive to unilaterally expand a program without legislative approval, it should be okay for another executive to dial it back.  If Congress wants to pass laws, Congress should get busy passing laws.
