GOP VP Candidate Paul Ryan to Appear With his Mom Betty at World’s Largest Retirement Community, The Villages in Florida, to Defend Medicare Plan
President Barack Obama may wish that he never decided to have a Medicare fight with GOP VP candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (WI-R). Don’t ask for things, they might come true. Ryan is about to school Obama and Democrats on his Medicare plan with a a secret weapon, his mom Betty.
Paul Ryan and his mom Betty will appear at The Villages, the largest retirement community in the world to discuss the Romney-Ryan Medicare plan. What better place to go to explain to seniors that the Romney-Ryan plan for Medicare does not affect those over the age of 55. Obama, Biden and their minions have been using typical Mediscare tactics to frighten seniors that Romney is going to take their Medicare away from them. Nothing could be further from the truth. To prove his point, Paul Ryan is bring his mom Betty to Florida this weekend. Who really thinks that Ryan is going to take Medicare away from his own mom?
Paul Ryan is headed to a Florida retirement community with his mother on Saturday to make his argument about the need to change Medicare for future generations. Ryan’s mother is in her late 70s.
He’ll appear at The Villages, the world’s largest retirement community and a conservative stronghold that is a must stop for Republican candidates. In 2008, a massive crowd of between 30,000 and 60,000 seniors came out to a rally Sarah Palin held there. Despite the Republican-leanings it’s a clear sign the Romney campaign will continue to stay on the offense on Medicare, but with this trip they may be entering the lion’s den.
Ryan’s mother, who will accompany him, can help her son connect with the senior citizen audience. She lives part of the year in Lauderdale-By-The Sea and part of the year outside of Janesville, Wisconsin.
No one, and I mean no one ever saw this one coming that Medicare would be a plus for the Romney-Ryan ticket and a negative for Obama. However, Obama and Obamacare has been pounded by the GOP that Obama took $716 billion from Medicare to fund Obamacare.
