Paul Ryan spoke with Bob Schieffer, one of the ambush debate moderators scheduled for the presidential debates, and explained that his mother is on Medicare in Florida. Congressman Ryan repeated his promise that near and current Seniors will not have changes made to their benefits – but his [Ryan’s] generation will. CBS completely edited out Ryan’s Mom. Can’t have Liberals knowing Republicans will be responsible for being responsible, while Obama has already raided Medicare of $500 Billion – $750 Billion to fund Medicaid. Video below.
Here’s the missing comment:
PAUL RYAN: My mom is a Medicare senior in Florida. Our point is we need to preserve their benefits, because government made promises to them that they’ve organized their retirements around. In order to make sure we can do that, you must reform it for those of us who are younger. And we think these reforms are good reforms, that have bipartisan origins. They started from the Clinton commission in the late ’90s.
