    The Obama campaign’s first Medicare ad has arrived.

    Chicago has released several web videos since last weekend going after Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney for their views on entitlements. But only this morning has the president’s team put out a TV spot on the issue. It’s not a totally slash-and-burn ad, but instead a commercial that contrasts what the AARP has said about the Affordable Care Act and what it has said about the Ryan budget.

    “The nonpartisan AARP says Obamacare ‘cracks down on Medicare fraud, waste and abuse,’” the ad says. “And the Ryan plan? AARP says it ‘would undermine’ Medicare and ‘could lead to higher costs for seniors.”

    It continues: “Experts say Ryan’s voucher plan could raise future retirees’ costs more than $6,000. Get the facts.”

    The pushback about the ACA – leaning on a trusted messenger in the form of the AARP – is a response to Romney’s Medicare-themed ads, which accuse Obama of cutting funding for the program. This won’t be the Obama team’s last Medicare ad, and almost certainly won’t be its toughest one either, but it’s the starting point of the Democratic paid media campaign on one of the issues that will define the general election.

    Ryans speech tonight was substance free, and an eloquently put set of misleading talking points. Put down Government spending though he wrote four letters asking for it and of course that lie about Obama taking from Medicare. NICE SPEECH but all based on oh so many lies and so few facts. WHAT A SMOOOOOOTH LIAR

    Well, one thing I'll say for Paul Ryan. He's got a lot of balls to stand up there and claim that he's going to preserve Medicare for his generation and for his kids' generation, AFTER we've all seen his budget plan, WHICH DESTROYS MEDICARE AND SOCIAL SECURITY.

    GOOD POINTS Webster666



    I just got in on some fact checking and Ryan blamed Obama for the closure of an automotive plant in Wisconsin when the fact is that the PLANT CLOSED IN DECEMBER OF 2008 UNDER BUSH'S WATCH.

    Back to what Webster pointed out, that when you fact check this guy RYAN, HE'S LYING THROUGH HIS TEETH. he's sure bold about it !!!!
