Both of These Things Can’t Be True

One of the key messages of the Romney/Ryan campaign is that they are serious about saving Medicare, and the Obama administration isn’t. They are willing to make the hard choices, and the Obama administration isn’t. They want to reduce spending, and the Obama adminstration just wants to raise taxes on the rich.

But then I read something, from Avik Roy, who is a member of Romney’s health care advisory group, which says that Obamacare cuts Medicare more than Romney would.

So which is it? It can’t be both. Time for some questions.
