    TAPPER: “One of the concerns about health care and how you pay for it — one third of the funding comes from cuts to Medicare.”
    BARACK OBAMA: “Right.”

    TAPPER: “A lot of times, as you know, what happens in Congress is somebody will do something bold and then Congress, close to election season, will undo it.”

    OBAMA: “Right.”

    TAPPER: “You saw that with the ‘doc fix’.”

    OBAMA: “Right.”

    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.”

    ...and the libs want to scare voters into thinking the Republicans would take away their Medicare.

    The democrats have already done it, but because they have control of the media they're going to force it off on the republicans. These people crave power so much over the masses that they're willing to do anything.

    I heard Ryan say it again today for like the 10th time...
    Seniors from age 55 on up will NOT see a bit of change to Medicare.
    Those 10 years away will have some changes and some options that they can control.

    I bet we will still hear today going forward that bunch over at MSNBC say that Ryan wants to screw over the people using Medicare today.
