    From Politifact

    Videos from the Agenda Project used elderly actors to falsely suggest Paul Ryan's proposal would affect current seniors.
    Lie of the Year 2011: 'Republicans voted to end Medicare'

    In campaign ads, web videos and TV interviews, Democrats repeatedly said House Republicans had "voted to end Medicare." Our 2011 winner is the latest in a long history of scare tactics aimed at senior citizens.

    Reforming Medicare is not ending Medicare.

    Dems are the ones who are ending Medicare by taking out 500 Billion for the new Health Care Bill
    And not not funding it with Payroll tax cut.

    If you take a pile of dogshit and rename it "good smelling rose", that doesn't make it a "good smelling rose".

    Take a program like "medicare" that insures every senior over 65 and then turn it into a voucher program that will cost much, much more and do much, much less, then it's not medicare. It's a "voucher" program.

    I'm so sick of "stupid". Can't the right peddle that crap someplace else? Go fuck over your "flock". Leave the rest of us "unfuckedover".

    Did Dems take out 500 Billion to pay for Medicare?
    Yes they did
    Dems passed the tax payroll cut last year and took another 111Billion from Medicare
    Your the one who refuses to get these facts.
    And you refuse to hear that Seniors would have had a choice for Medicare or a private insurance.
    The new Health Care Bill will not cover Seniors period when Doctors will not take new Medicare patients.
    So who has gotten rid of Medicare? DEMS
