“The president, I’m told, is talking about Medicare today,” Ryan said. “We want this debate.”
Ryan went on to say that “what I don’t think he’ll be telling people is that the president took $716 billion from the Medicare program — he raided it to pay for Obamacare.”
That’s hilarious because Ron Paul Ryan included the exact same Medicare savings in his ridiculous budget plan (though it’s not $716 billion — both Obamacare and Ryan’s plan contain just over $400 billion in savings from waste, fraud and abuse). This “very serious” sidekick is inextricably tied to the Romney Lie Machine now.
