CuriousJockAZ saidIt will be interesting to see how this race shapes up as Romney / Ryan criss-cross this country and methodically educate everyday Americans about the truth regarding "The Ryan Plan" and the parts of that plan which will be integrated into "The Romney Plan". Ryan will be in campaigning in Florida this weekend --- should be interesting to see what kind of reception he receives.
Too late. The AARP, a non partisan entity struck first. The Romney/Ryan lies wont stick.
True. My partner & I are both AARP members, and we've been getting a slew of AARP mail, e-mail and robocalls warning us about the risks to Medicare and Social Security with some of these proposals.
And while not strictly partisan in the message, it's clear which side wants to preserve these social programs that mostly benefit seniors, and which side wants to either eliminate them, or hand them over to private business for a profit, with reduced benefits and higher costs to recipients.
Just this morning we got an automated AARP 5-question telephone survey on Medicare. Too bad for R&R, but seniors are getting a message from their own side which is at odds with the message from the self-serving Republican political side. I have a feeling that many seniors are still not too senile to buy from the snake-oil salesmen in the Republican Party, not when their own organization remains skeptical, if not hostile to proposals like Ryan's.
