The tea party is apparently not on the Medicare-Medicaid-cutting bandwagon, so reports The Atlantic Wire.

In a recent McClatchy-Marist poll, 70 percent of ‘tea party supporters’ strongly opposed cutting the healthcare plan for the elderly and indigent, compared to about 80 percent of registered voters.

This despite Paul Ryan’s 2012 budget which passed the House last week and phases out Medicare for those under 55.

A series of pundits have called Ryan’s budget a plus for Democrats, particularly if the party keeps slamming the cuts as worse than they are.
