Quote of the Day

"Knowing full well that picking Paul Ryan as his running mate would invite Democrat "Mediscare" tactics over Ryan's reform plans, the Romney campaign was prepared and unleashed a broadside of ads accusing Obama of cutting $716 billion out of Medicare to fund Obamacare. 
Team Obama's response has been that they are not cutting benefits, just payments to doctors, hospitals and insurance companies. Oh, that's all -- they're just not going to pay the people who care for the elderly. 
America's seniors aren't that stupid. They know that more and more doctors are refusing to take new Medicare patients because they can't afford the losses, as this Forbes column
In its own way, this is a form of rationing -- a policy decision that will result in fewer options and less care for senior citizens."
