In the December 10 Republican debate, Mr. Romney stated: “Let’s not forget, only one president has ever cut Medicare for seniors in this country, and it’s Barack Obama.” He might have more accurately said, “Let’s make up this idea that President Obama cut Medicare and ignore the fact that Ronald Reagan made cuts to the program several times.” But the White House wannabe didn’t bother to explain the basis for his nonsensical statement.
