Note to Paul Ryan: You might want to avoid Florida on your next book tour, seeing as how that's where a lot of seniors live with time on their hands to wait in line to talk to you. When we last caught up with him in Pensicola, he was avidy dodging uncomfortable questions. But, as you can see in the video above, someone finally pinned him down on his Medicare cuts, and got a big, fat lie from Ryan.
Voter: “Are you planning any cuts to Medicare?”Then there's some song and dance about how if you are "in or near retirement, nothing will change." Is 55 near retirement? From a financial standpoint, absolutely. And if you're 55 or younger, Ryan wants you to have to pay a lot more for your Medicare through his voucher plan. That's along with increasing out-of-pocket expenses for traditional Medicare plans (like what people have now) to try to force them into the privatized voucher plans.
Ryan should probably stick to his avoidance tactics. If he doesn't open his mouth, he won't be lying.
