In Response to The $716 Billion Medicare Falsehood:
Romney and Ryan keep telling us that President Obama's plan is taking $716 Billion from Medicare and after researching this claim it is not true. The Non Partisan Congressional Budget Office reports that President Obama's plan SAVES $716 Billion over 10 years The Washington Post and New York Times state both Romney and Ryan made several False statements at the Republican National Convention. According to the above mentioned sources, The Republicans keep spending millions on False Advertising

They LIE cause the GOP base doesn't care if they lie. I don't even understand the psychi of people who continue to vote against their own best interest. But certainly Karl Rove took measure long ago just how gullible and how rigid the minds are of a good number of Americans and used the Media to that advantage it gave the GOP.
I had switched over to Fox for a few seconds to see what they were showing & they mostly.... had their pundits on like OReilly---Hannity --talking ....and a little square box in the corner of the TV showing the convention. So the people probably missed the speeches by the Catholic Nuns, the military families, GM & other auto workers, Bain employees that were scammed. Just before switching to commercials Brit Hume thought he was off camera and said to Hannity that the convention was over-rated.
The GOP has FOX on their side ...and the controlling shares are owned by a NON-AMERICAN ....
Saudi billionaire, Al-waleed bin Talal . But their audience has no clue ...nor they know how they are being duped.
