For some reason ’60 Minutes’ sent out a transcript of the Romney-Ryan interview but decided not to air the portion where Paul Ryan tells Bob Schieffer his mother is a “Medicare senior in Florida.” Don’t you think this is an important piece of information considering the Democrat Party’s central line of attack against Ryan is that he “ends Medicare as we know it?”
BOB SCHIEFFER: You’re going to have to see– you’re going to have to do a little selling.
PAUL RYAN: My mom is a Medicare senior in Florida. Our point is we need to preserve their benefits, because government made promises to them that they’ve organized their retirements around. In order to make sure we can do that, you must reform it for those of us who are younger. And we think these reforms are good reforms, that have bipartisan origins. They started from the Clinton commission in the late ’90s.
