    Don't worry, Obama and AARP will set them straight before the election.

    And the truth is just now barely beginning to emerge.

    Romney / Ryan has a huge warchest to make sure the facts are known.

    Obama is gutting Medicare for CURRENT seniors.

    Yep the fear driven right wingers...

    Pretty low to use the fear of elders for political purposes though.

    I don't think he has cut a dime yet.
    He will cut from projected increases didn't he?

    Rasmussen again.

    Obama did not take a red cent out of the Medicare Trust Fund, nor a cent of the money Americans paid in. He did not cut a cent from the benefit package for current or future Medicare recipients. All that money is there and will continue to be there until it is paid out in medical benefits.

    What Obama did is use $716 billion over 10 years ($71 billion a year) from future savings in the Medicare Trust Fund and he uses that money for seniors’ health care benefits. That money comes from excessive and wasteful “administrative costs” paid to drug companies, hospitals, and doctors.

    The money is being used, through Obamacare, for things like closing the donut hole in senior drug benefits, which is already saving seniors on their prescriptions, as well as free cancer screenings, and other medical services to seniors.

    Obama is taking money from drug companies, insurance companies, and hospitals, not from seniors.

    Ryans Medicare plan calls for the same 716 billion in cuts but he wants to use it for tax cuts for the wealthy.

    Try the Medicare website: It has a bunch of info. on it.

    Except it's not fear, my friend. It's truth.
