Democrats react to Wyden-Ryan Medicare plan
Reactions were typical of Washington. Partisan Democrats groused, knowing their ability to demagogue this issue had just taken a hit.
White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said, “The Wyden-Ryan scheme” — note the cleverly derisive word — would “end Medicare as we know it for millions of seniors.” Baloney. The only thing certain to end Medicare as we know it is the status quo of Medicare itself.
