Raiding Medicare

by Mary

During the healthcare war, Paul Ryan complained that Obama and the Democrats were raiding Medicare for other programs:

RYAN: Now, when you take a look at the Medicare cuts, what this bill essentially does is treats Medicare like a piggy bank. It raids a half a trillion dollars out of Medicare not to shore up Medicare’s solvency but to spend on this new government program.

Funny how Ryan's new budget raids Medicare for a much better reason: to give tax breaks to the rich.
