If you don’t enjoy reading wonky policy papers, here are three videos about the Medicare debate that you might find of use. The first features Paul Ryan, explaining what’s wrong with Medicare today, and how the Wyden-Ryan approach to Medicare reform differs from Obamacare.
As Yuval Levin eloquently puts it on the home page, “In the wake of Paul Ryan’s selection as Mitt Romney’s running mate, some [liberals] have seemed downright giddy at the prospect of unleashing that lie, and perhaps even building their entire fall campaign around it. Many of them surely don’t even know it’s a lie. But it is, and a strategy based on a lie can work only if it is left unchallenged.”
The facts in this debate are on our side.
