Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan plan to end Medicare as we know it. Now, as voters react, Romney responds by lying about the President’s record on Medicare.
The Obama campaign hits back against the lies that Romney is trying to spread saying the Affordable Healthcare Act “cuts $700 billion from the Medicare Trust Fund,” which isn’t true.
The $700 billion isn’t cut from seniors, it’s cut from inefficiencies and payments to hospitals. According to the Congressional Budget Office, Obama’s plan cuts a reduction in the expected rate of growth, not cutting budgets to the elderly. Benefits will be improved. Money is NOT being taken from seniors benefits.
