  •  One thing about this lie is it's a bit easier (12+ / 0-)

    to push back to regular folks. I've got more than a few people to think a bit with this:

    1) The cuts to Medicare you mention were agreed to by the entire medical industry because they come out of THEIR pocket - not the patient benefits. They agreed to smaller payments in exchange for more patients. Why would they support ACA if they were not going to profit from it in some way, right?

    2) Those Medicare "cuts" will be going directly back into the system to pay for the additional people coming into the ACA system. We want everyone to go to their doctor instead of the ER, when they are sick, right? And the medical industry agrees.  

    3) Romney/Ryan want to use the same "cuts" from Medicare to be used for more tax cuts for the wealthy. How does taking money from Medicare, and using it for tax cuts, provide any healthcare for Americans?

    I'm usually met with the "huh, I'm thinking" face then silence.

    Nature created the human race, but humans created racism.
