At every campaign stop, Obama's been lying about the $6,400 that seniors would allegedly have to pay if they opted for the old version of Ryan's reform bill. But Obama realized that, eventually, the truth would catch up with him. Not from the mainstream media, mind you, but it would come up in the debates. So he's slightly modified his approach to the lie:
I do not think it is a good idea to set up Medicare as a voucher system in which seniors are spending up to $6,000 more out of pocket. That was the original proposal Congressman Ryan put forward. And there is still a strong impulse I think among some Republicans for that kind of approach.They're evil, I tells ya!
