Posted on 08/15/2012 2:21:38 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
The Republican National Committee chairman says President Obama has blood on [his] hands for cutting Medicare. Mitt Romney blasts the president for having robbed the program of $700 billion.
Vice President Biden accuses Romney and running mate Paul Ryan of gutting Medicare. And, inevitably, President Obama warned that Romney-Ryan would end Medicare as we know it.
Arent you glad were having a sober policy discussion about how to rein in entitlement spending?

Typical gutless Leftist clown at the Democrat Propaganda post
DEMOCRATS have been demonizing the GOP on Entitlements for years. Romney-Ryan are RETURNING the fire. Don’t blame the victims for the crimes of the aggressors.
The only debate is where do you get the money to pay for this when you are already 16 Trillion Dollars in debt and you are having sustained high unemployment?
The Party is over. There never was a free lunch as the Government wanted you to think..
Spending, spending it's always spending under attack. How about increasing income? We didn't seem to have any problem before we started to export our economy to the world. There used to be 10 workers supporting the retired person. Well there are still 10 only 8 are in other countries and neither they nor their employers are contribution 12.4% to SS. Fix that and the problem is solved.
(A woman is sitting alone in a wheelchair near the edge of a financial cliff.)
The voiceover announcer starts:
Announcer: Obama and the Democrats have placed our seniors at the edge of a cliff.
Announcer: President Obama took $716 Billion from Medicare to finance an Obamacare program that will not cover seniors.
(A man in a suit approaches the woman from behind. We cannot see his face, because he is out of focus.)
Announcer: They will appoint bureaucrats to cut even more money out of Medicare, hurting seniors and denying coverage.
(The man continues to approach, building tension. Finally, he comes close enough to see his face. It's Paul Ryan!)
Announcer: But Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will protect seniors over 55 and fix medicare so it is still there for younger workers when they retire.
(Ryan kneels down in front of the woman, and smiles)
Ryan: Come with me, Ma'am... Lets fix this problem.
The commercial ends with Ryan pushing the woman in her wheelchair away from the edge of the cliff, toward a waiting car...
Maybe there will be a trend?
WaPo's Ruth Marcus: Paul Ryan Is 'Sarah Palin With Substance and a Paper Trail'
Ruth Marcus: Ryan takes Romney where he doesn't want to go ...
Ruth Marcus: Enough 'gaffe' coverage
Ruth Marcus: Religious fundamentalism threatens Israel, but it's not Arabs
Thanks for that good news.
