    FactCheck.org : No End to ‘End Medicare’ Claim

    Republicans and Democrats alike agree that something has to be done about the spiraling costs of Medicare. The Ryan plan above is the most responsible action plan the Congress has had. I think many of you will agree.

    Are you stupid? Apparently you have not seen this actual footage or Paul Ryan throwing his G-ma off a cliff!

    Not to mention that a lot of what his plan entails is choice, much like the choice that Congress enjoys.

    This is not what passed in his budget is it?

    Anyhow, if it's a choice, and people can just stay in the current Medicare as is, where do you save money?

    His budget never made it to the Senate floor. Reid said they didn't need any ol' budget. Read the entire post.

    The house passed an earlier version. This was updated this year.

    Wow. I remember when wingnuts spent all of 2011 (and the first few months of 2012) denying that Ryan was straight up ending Medicare.

    Then he dialed it back in an election year, opting to slowly strangle it instead of swiftly pulling the plug, and the right's response is: "Well, yeah, he did propose to end it but that's outdated! Why are you looking at what virtually every elected Republican voted for last year! That was eons ago!"

    You people must be out of your fucking minds.
