Seems like a good time to revive this necrothread.
More evidence (as if any is needed):
60 Minutes (CBS) edited out comments made by Ryan about his Medicare-aged mother and the reality that his budget proposal guarantees that the Medicare promises already made to seniors, around which their retirement/financial lives have been organized, would not be broken, and puts in place significant reforms in order for any Medicare to be there for those currently under 55.
Today, Chuck Todd of NBC lets Gibbs spew a flat-out lie that his (Gibbs's) 83 year old 'cancer survivor' father would be forced to 'take a voucher' under Ryan's plan, Todd's only 'challenge' being "but Republicans would say...". To which Gibbs replied that he wouldn't trust anything a Republican said about Medicare, which went without even a token challenge.
Ryan's proposal would not change, by a single nickel, the benefits received by current Medicare beneficiaries.
Again, the leftist media lapdogs are flat-out dishonest, committing lie after overt lie, not to mention lies by omission... and proud of it.
