.Pelosi Claims Six Million Seniors Will Starve and that Seniors Lose Medicare

Flanking herself with a number of senior citizens, Nancy Pelosi has traveled across America attacking Republican budget proposals generally and the Paul Ryan tax plan (the “Path to Prosperity”) specifically.  In a speech in Florida, Pelosi stated:

“When Medicare was passed it was a pillar of stability for our seniors … much of which is being undermined by Republicans,” Pelosi told dozens of seniors gathered at a retirement home in Orlando. “Why should the federal government save money on the backs of seniors at the same time that they are giving tax breaks to millionaires, giving subsidies to Big Oil, and tax cuts to companies that send jobs overseas?”

“What they are proposing does not create jobs, does not protect Medicare or Medicaid, and does not care for our seniors,” Pelosi said.

“They’re voting to end Medicare as we know it,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi argues that the Ryan Path to Prosperity is actually the Path to Poverty and claims that the Ryan proposal, and other Republican budget proposals will result in the starvation of 6,000,000 seniors:

The Truth

Funny thing, I have read the entire Pathway to Prosperity and one thing is absolutely clear – the Paul Ryan budget, and all other current Republican proposals EXEMPT THOSE ALREADY 55 AND OLDER.  Not a single current “senior” will be impacted by any budget proposal.  Now I know that I shouldn’t be shocked that a politician twists a language in legislation to try to make their point, but this one is an outright lie.  Surrounding herself with the elderly, she clearly is trying to rally the AARP crowd with allegations that THEIR health care is immediately at risk when nothing could be farther from the truth.

The sad thing is that I as I prepped to write this story, not a SINGLE main stream media outlet picked up on this huge lie.  That is the problem today, we get so used to being fed the news and our opinions that few actually take the time to dig behind the words to find the truth.
