The Cutting Medicare Meme

Obama is cutting Medicare.

This is a talking-point the Republicans are trying to create. Aimed specifically at the elderly voting block, this campaign strategy - the bad black man is gutting/stealing your medical care - is shamelessly and sadly being pushed by the Republicans. What a great example the Republican party is setting for our country - lie, cheat, or steal your way to the top.

Reince Priebus: Obama's Medicare cuts leave "blood" on his hands

"Republicans frequently use this Medicare talking point, even though it's false. While the Affordable Care Act does reduce Medicare spending, as Politifact has explained, 'Those dollars aren’t taken out of the current budget, they are not actual cuts, and nowhere does the bill actually eliminate any current benefits.'"

As usual, this terrible thing Barack Obama is supposedly doing, is just a figment of the Republicans' imagination.
