ICYMI: Chairman Priebus: “The Obama Medicare Plan: Rob it and Let it Die”

- August 15, 2012

Excerpts from Townhall

 

By: Chairman Reince Priebus

August 15, 2012

"Gov. Romney and Congressman Ryan have something President Obama does not: A plan to save Medicare.

"That's right, for all their scare tactics, President Obama and Democrats have no plan whatsoever to preserve Medicare for future generations--or protect it for today's seniors and those nearing retirement...

"Since Medicare is on track to go bankrupt in 2024, the de facto Obama Medicare plan is to rob it and watch it disappear, leaving future generations without any hope of receiving benefits and today's seniors with an unpredictable future...

"Democrats have hit the airwaves to desperately demagogue the issue and scare seniors. Without any plan of their own, they're relying on the stale old tactics that have failed before: lying about Republicans' plans and hoping voters won't figure out the truth...

"Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan offer a different course. Both have a history of working with both parties to get things done. Former Clinton chief of staff and the head of Obama's debt commission Erskine Bowles calls Congressman Ryan 'amazing.' He praised his budget plan as 'sensible, straightforward, and serious'...

"Because of President Obama's failed record on nearly every issue from the economy to the deficit to Medicare, the Obama campaign has become increasingly dirty, despicable, and desperate.

"President Obama is the only president who has cut Medicare by $700 billion. And he is the only candidate in this race willing to let Medicare die."
