Romney-Ryan Want It Both Ways on Medicare - Bloomberg
Jared Sperli stashed this in politics
Capretta writes that Ryan should argue that, if elected, he and Romney "will be in a position to find even greater savings elsewhere that will allow cancellation of the entirety of the Medicare cuts without raising the deficit." This is ridiculous.
Romney has committed to grow defense spending relative to the CBO baseline. His campaign has said any changes to Social Security "will not affect today’s seniors or those nearing retirement." I assume he intends to continue paying interest on the national debt. Now he wants to take Medicare off the table all the way through the two terms he might serve as president?
