    Oophs...he forgot what he said.


    Obama in 2009 Video Clip: I Will Veto Attempts to Undo My Medicare Cuts

    TAPPER: Are you willing to pledge that whatever cuts in Medicare are being made to fund health insurance, one third of it, that you will veto anything that tries to undo that?
    OBAMA: Yes. I actually have said that it is important for us to make sure this thing is deficit neutral, without tricks. I said I wouldn’t sign a bill that didn’t meet that criteria.”

    What you're not realizing is that $700+ billion he took from Medicare, he replaced with rainbows, sunshine and unicorns.

    Obama extended the solvency of Medicare for 8 years.

    On day one, Romney has promised to shorten the solvency of Medicare by 8 years.

    Take your pick. If you want to see Medicare killed, then certainly seeing its life shortened by 8 years is a good step in your direction.
