On her Big Government blogpost at Breitbart.com, Paul Ryan cheerleader Dana Loesch is falsely claiming that "Obama, not Ryan, cut Medicare." We know that's a flat-out lie, as Ryan's proposed budget plan DOES gut Medicare.
The Obama campaign went after Congressman Paul Ryan over the weekend, claiming that he wanted to push old people off of cliffs by gutting their Medicare. The problem with that false narrative comes by way of Cutter Shambles, the Deputy Campaign Manager for Obama's reelection effort:
Cutter demonstrates a rare bit of honesty here: President Obama did gut Medicare with his health care law. It was part of the fuzzy math employed to make Obamacare look less expensive than the real price tag. Sacrificing seniors for headlines.
Democrats apparently think we voters have forgotten their debunked scare tactics from 2011. Their inability to evolve their rhetoric from this point shows how desperate the campaign is and how scared they are after the Ryan announcement.
Paul Ryan's budget would end Medicare as we know it,savage safety net & hand out tax breaks to richest.He is Robin Hood in deep,dark reverse
