Observations on the pathetic state of American politics

Romney Joins the GOP Lies Parade

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.  One assumes that he’s referring the the much-maligned Affordable Care Act which, as it turns out, does not reduce current benefits.

Once again a major figure in the Republican Party just makes stuff up, totally ignoring reality.  Here’s the complete analysis from PolitiFact.
