“Paid In”, Stephanie Cutter, and Medicare: Mitt Romney Ad Targeting Obama And Medicare with Discussion
You paid into Medicare all your life, and when you need it, the money isn’t going to be there. This Romney ad tells people about how the Obama administration cut 716 BILLION from Medicare for what you ask? Obamacare: yet another failure of a government program. An Obama retort ad (which I will show in the next post) claims that Romney’s claim that Obama took billions from Medicare is false. However, history shows that Obama wanted to cut Medicare to pay for Obamacare. Not to mention that OHH RIGHT! Obama’s Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter said that, in fact, the Obama administration HAD cut Medicare.
YES! You did hear that right. While the Obama campaign is squawking about how Mitt Romney’s ad is false, the DEPUTY CAMPAIGN MANAGER said that they cut 700 BILLION from Medicare.
In fact, from an article from Town Hall, Obama admitted that:
TAPPER: “One of the concerns about health care and how you pay for it — one third of the funding comes from cuts to Medicare.”
BARACK OBAMA: “Right.”
TAPPER: “A lot of times, as you know, what happens in Congress is somebody will do something bold and then Congress, close to election season, will undo it.”
TAPPER: “You saw that with the ‘doc fix’.”
TAPPER: “Are you willing to pledge that whatever cuts in Medicare are being made to fund health insurance, one third of it, that you will veto anything that tries to undo that?”
OBAMA: “Yes. I actually have said that it is important for us to make sure this thing is deficit neutral, without tricks. I said I wouldn’t sign a bill that didn’t meet that criteria.”
So, not only have Obama surrogates said the president is cutting medicare, but Obama himself has! Yet, the media refuses to notice that these Obama attacks are false.
