A few minutes ago TPM reported that a hoax memo has been circulated that claims to be a Democratic HCR Budget Buster. The alleged memo talks about changes for Medicare that would taked placce next year.
Democrats today are accusing Republicans of circulating a fraudulent memo that claims to be sent to "Democratic health and communications staff" and which suggests the majority party leadership wants to make big changes to Medicare next year after health care passes
Link to fradulent Memo:
A senior Democratic leadership aide told TPMDC in an interview the memo, obtained and printed by Politico and leading the Drudge Report this afternoon a few days ahead of the health care vote Sunday, is "a hoax."
At this point, nothing surprises me. It points to desperation on the part of GOP members who want to stop Health Care Reform at all costs. This tactic is not new for the GOP (on the anniversary on the Iraq invasion) who used lies about WMD to get us into a war. I hope that the originator of the Memo is tracked down.....
