    The claim that House Republicans' budget would end Medicare is the "lie of the year," according to the fact-checking website Politifact.

    According to Politifact's analysis, saying the Ryan plan "ends Medicare" overlooks the fact that its changes would not affect people 55 and older.

  4. lol, thats some serious spin, you should have taken a job in politics.

    By that logic you could make the claim that someone is killing medicare any time they make the slightest adjustment to it, this argument is now a moot point because Obama already killed medicare when he took some money out of it to fund obamacare. :D

    At this point my job is nearly all political. No, your "slightest adjustment" argument does not fly, because I did not indicate a "slight" adjustment in my analogy.
