Debate 2: Vice Presidential Candidates

Medicare and Social Security

Rep. Paul Ryan used the Romney campaign attack that Obamacare takes $716 billion from Medicare, citing his grandmother, mother and his dependence on Social Security, especially after his father died. He says the president’s plan has a death panel in place run by bureaucrats with no medical knowledge.

“Medicare and social security are going bankrupt – it’s facts,” Ryan said. 

Joe Biden said that Ryan would put in a plan that added $6,400 a year to the cost of Medicare.
