Fasten your seat belts, ladies and gentlemen. Democrats, who are obviously intent on bankrupting the U.S. have started their spin machine in earnest, aided by the shameless left wing media.
The Administration (HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius) said yesterday that millions of seniors could could see their Medicare payments blocked under the House GOP plan that shaves a measly $57 billion from this years budget (which amounts to be a spit in the ocean!). However, no words were uttered as to the fate that awaits seniors under Obamacare by the same party which will be cutting half a trillion dollars from Medicare and force millions of seniors on to Medicaid, or welfare to be blunt.
Mrs. Sebelius also did not deny that the $500 billion cut from Medicare could not both "save" Medicare and fund ObamaCare at the same time. Then again, this type of smoke and mirrors is what this Administration is all about.
The Administration also alluded to the fallacy that Social Security check could be delayed should the Republicans force a government shutdown. This fallacy has been put out by the willing media as well, however the cold hard fact of the matter is that 2/3 of the federal budget is on automatic pilot. Services like Medicare and Social Security checks are not affected by any government shut-down, which I am praying for.
