I think the Democrats are discovering that they stepped on a land mine -- Medicare.
The fact is that Medicare.
Was rated for Obama care and here's why -- his name and -- we issue.
The Obama administration had to show because it kept arguing -- -- not gonna cost anybody anything.
This will be revenue neutral it's not -- add to the budget deficit and that was the mantra for a year and a half so they had to get half a billion dollars from somewhere.
That's why they made the cut in Medicare.
In order to be able to say in the -- in the obamacare bill itself.
You take that money you put a -- obamacare it pays for itself thus its revenue neutral this is not a fable.
Not a fiction it was part it was the heart of the debate.
Now as you interviewed the president you pointed -- that they keep arguing to him though the money isn't spent over here it's really in the trust fund.
It is not you can't have it in two places.
So that is simply a fact and that it's devastating because.
The Republicans can now argue that Obama is actually.
Taking the money away from you -- -- today and for the next decade.
Where as the Ryan plan.
Contemplates a change which begins in ten -- which would exempt anybody who's in the system today.
Which doesn't reduce the spending in Medicare.
And then what Obama said is that at the end of that plan.
If you lose a guarantee of that Medicare that also is a falsehood the Medicare option has retained in 20/20 two.
