Man, this is only day three and Paul Ryan is already coming for the elderly. It’s pretty low to shield yourself behind your sick father, but this is a scumbag Obama adviser we’re talking about here. These people are absolute sociopaths.
Former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said that Paul Ryan’s Medicare reform would hurt his father who survived lung cancer — an attack that unfortunately echoes the Obama super PACs suggestion that Mitt Romney caused a woman to die of cancer.
“You’re going to hand out vouchers to seniors . . . you’re going to hand one to my father who is 83, who is a lung cancer survivor and has far different medical needs than his former White House staffing son does at 41.” Gibbs told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd.
Todd corrected Gibbs — “Republicans would say, ‘your father’s not going to get that, because they wouldn’t do anything [to his Medicare]‘” — but the former White House aide chose to suggest that Ryan is lying about his intentions for Medicare.
“I wouldn’t trust Republicans on Medicare as far as I could throw them,” Gibbs said.
They know the facts and that is Ryan will reform Medicare, not steal $700 billion from it like his boss Obama.
