    to do it by way of response.  Romney lies is a useful meme to keep alive.

    And they can now also point to the Ryan budget, CBO, show that the same exessive subsidies to the insurers are cut, leaving more money to pay for other things.

    And Ryan's other things are tax cuts for the rich.  Obama's other things are more clinics, more medicaid (which pays for Granny's nursing home), more basic services, closing the donut hole saving seniors hundreds of dollars a year, etc.

    The contrast will play better if the lie is on video.

    •  I agree with this observation... (10+ / 0-)

      ...Let Romney introduce the lie and then remind folks about what Romney/Ryan does with the money (tax breaks for the richest 1 percent) as compared with the president (more health care). I'm sure the Romney campaign will be very sorry that they brought that up (not to mention the mess Romney/Ryan surrogate John Sununu got into when confronted with the facts by CNN's Soledad O'Brien).
