    It always amazes me how so many believe obvious lies when somebody talks like they are an authority figure. Hope for an awakening of “We’re mad as hell, and we’re not going to take it any more!”

    Sununu’s thought bubble: “She’s not buying it. This never happens on Hannity’s show.”

    Hey John,
    If you’re going to allow yourself to be interviewed by a journalist who is not employed by News Corp, then you need to accept that your rhetoric will be challenged every now and then.

    Republicans are playing one of their favorite games regarding anything associated with the POTUS:
    “We’ll damn him if he does, and we’ll damn him if he doesn’t, and we’ll assume that the American people are too ignorant to realize it.”

    To that end, when the GOP complains about corruption and waste in the Medicare program, and then the Obama Administration sets to work ferreting out the sources of said waste and reforming the program, thus saving billions of taxpayer dollars … these same conservative blowhards turn right around and attempt to fear-monger the public with faux outrage over the resulting budgetary cuts to the program.

    So let’s explore this more thoroughly. As stated above, Republicans were adamant that something be done to curb waste in the Medicare program. Obama readily agreed, and changes were made, including a more streamlined procurement of pharmaceuticals and other health aides for seniors on Medicare. In other words, the budget reduction does not result in a decrease in Medicare services as Team Romney is so desperately trying to imply. Furthermore, the Republican plan includes the same resulting budget reductions, something that they seem to ignore when bashing Obama.

    The difference is what is done with the saved funds. The Obama Administration folded these savings into the ACA in order to provide medical coverage to millions of people who would otherwise not have access to preventative health care. The Republican plan is to give the billions in savings to back to taxpayers, specifically the ultra-wealthy (i.e., the subset of society that calls the shots).

    Of course, the long-term plan that Ryan proposed is to phase out Medicare completely and replace it with a voucher system that will cover only a small fraction of the elderly’s health care needs. Because, after all, they have their health care coverage — to hell with anyone who doesn’t.

    “O’Brien proceeded to pick Sununu’s argument apart as well as call him on his incredibly disrespectful behavior:”

    Well done Soledad O’Brien…

    I also thank Soledad for taking John Sununu to task for his lies.
