Why would minority whip Pelosi state that Ryans Budget Bill abolishes medicare?
Minority whip Pelosi on the floor of Congress on 5/31/2011 stated that Ryan's Budget Bill abolishes Medicare.Ryan's bill does not change existing Medicare for seniors 54 and over as it exists today.Pelosi's statement is a half true statement since the changes would first occur in 2021,3 years before the total callapse of the medicare system.
Actually it is totally untrue. The bill does not abolish Medicare now or in the future, it just changes the way it works. But she got you to believe it, so her tactic worked. It's to scare people back home into writing their congressmen and having them vote against it, simple as that.
A must to watch to understand that Pelosi still don't understand the Ryan proposal.
