I do not write diaries so forgive me for my brevity.
The reason for my diary is that i have not seen any diaries or pundit coverage regarding Mitt's new age to not worry about entitlement changes. In his "response" regarding "entitlements", he mostly criticizes Obama's 750B Medicare cuts. When he begins to answer the question, he says that no one who is age 60 need be concerned that something with SS or Medicare will "change their life for the worse" as nothing will change for them.
Did any other fellow late baby boomers, (55-59 year olds) sort of crap their pants like I did? They have been using the age 55 as the cutoff for the whole campaign. I was surprised to NOT see this as a major talking point by the Obama campaign or Rachael Maddow show. They just increased the age group that will get the vouchers and additional SS age cuts by 5 years! (we already were hit the last time with the last reform). Why doesn't Obama jump on this? I assume their are others in my age group that noticed? (Romney's shtick regarding entitlements begins around the 39 minute mark).
So my purpose is to ask the community whether this is a big deal or not. If it is a big deal, why is their no coverage?
