Bloggers and readers are engaged in a shouting match at present over Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan’s ‘Path to Prosperity’ and Democrats’ refusal to pass a budget. “Medi-Scare” tactics—denigrating Ryan’s plan for the benefit of Democrats’ political gain—have even been blamed for the GOP loss in a special congressional election in New York. Never mind the fake Tea Party candidate who was actually a Democrat. Most pundits say that faker helped swing the election to the Democrat. Read about the New York candidate’s real political colors at Red State.
What’s worrisome is the propaganda being spewed, and in some cases, the outright advocacy to maintain the status quo in a program that will change whether Ryan’s plan were to be adopted anyway. Fact is the Democrats’ healthcare plan targeted Medicare too.
