EVER SINCE PAUL RYAN was selected as Romney’s running mate, Rep. Wasserman-Schultz and other Democrats have been falsely claiming that Romney-Ryan’s Medicare plan would impact seniors, without saying that those 55 and older would not be affected. Now, perhaps Wasserman-Schultz and other Democrats believe Republicans will bait and switch, but if that’s the case they should say it.
As I wrote yesterday, seniors aren’t stupid. Florida is an imperative for Mitt Romney to win, so scaring seniors is an easy ploy, but Republicans aren’t suggesting that seniors now getting Medicare of nearing the age requirement are impacted, so the people who should be objecting are those in their 40s.
Wolf Blitzer grills Wasserman-Schultz, who refuses to be transparent without a torturous interview session, but Wolf finally gets her to admit it.
CNN is billing itself during the election season as the only cable network that hasn’t chosen sides. With their ratings lagging, one would hope people would want this option, but there’s no evidence many do.
