“Now Mitt Romney is attacking the President on Medicare?”
“The non-partisan AARP says Obamacare ‘cracks down on Medicare fraud, waste, and abuse’ and ‘strengthens guaranteed benefits’.”
“And the Ryan plan?”
“AARP says it would undermine … Medicare and could lead to higher costs for seniors….”
“And experts say Ryan’s voucher plan could raise future retirees’ costs more than six thousand dollars.”

“Vice President Joe Biden on Medicare – Blacksburg, VA”
‘Published on Aug 15, 2012 by BarackObamadotcom
Vice President Biden continued his tour of southern and southwestern Virginia. Today he delivered remarks at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg. The Vice President shared how the Romney-Ryan plan will end Medicare and what the President is doing to protect and strengthen it.
“They make massive changes in Medicare. Turning it into a voucher system–this is mentioned. That means seniors would no longer have guaranteed Medicare. They get a voucher, they get a voucher to buy private insurance coverage. And you know how confusing it is to begin with.”
“No I’m not being facetious. They get a voucher. And because the voucher would not keep up with rising health costs, seniors would be forced to pay, based on studies, an extra $6,400 under the Ryan-Romney plan.”
“We see an America where Social Security is protected, where Medicare is available to distressed people. And where Medicare fulfills its original mission. That¹s why we¹ve strengthened Medicare, to extend its life by eight years, made reforms that have saved millions of seniors, hundreds of dollars on their prescription drugs. That¹s why we¹ve proposed reforms that save Medicare money by getting rid of wasteful spending on health care systems without cutting a single penny in Medicare benefits.”‘
Thank you Bill Moyers.

In ten states so far — some of them swing states — voter ID laws have been enacted that make it too expensive or difficult for some voters, particularly the elderly, poor and minorities, to get required photo identification. Besides requiring voter ID, other laws have decreased the number of early voting days, made it harder for nonprofit groups to register new voters, and repealed election day voter registration.
What’s happening in your state? Were new restrictive laws passed recently? Bill Moyers wants to hear your true stories of politically-motivated rules and obstacles that make it harder for Americans to register or vote.

Is there a split on the ticket? Granholm says, “Don’t worry,” Mitt always changes his mind.
