The DCCC is attempting to convince their loyal base that the evil Republicans, led by Paul Ryan, are attempting to end Medicare. They have sent out emails directing their followers to their brand new Medicare Action Center web site complete with talking points, key facts, letter templates, canvassing kits, and a schedule of upcoming Republican townhall meetings and encouragement to “Tell Republican Members of Congress to keep their hands off the Medicare benefits”.
We have already discussed the Democrats lie that despite enrolling 10,000 new baby boomers into the program the Democrats claim they can magically maintain the Medicare program as is with no reform. Now the main stream media may finally may be starting to report the truth. The St. Petersburg Times Politifact has given the DCCC a FALSE rating on their claim that Republicans and specifically Representative Robert Hurt R-VA5 voted to end Medicare and raise health care costs by voting for the House Republican budget and a Pants on Fire rating for its claim that “Seniors will have to find $12,500 for health care because Republicans voted to end Medicare.”
Politifact stated that the DCCC knows their claims are false but their incredible desire to scare seniors outweighs the need to be truthful and the DCCC is extremely misleading, kind of like Wiener’s desire to stay in office outweighs the need to be truthful. I guess it’s a Democrat thing.
