Ryan Rolls Out New Video: 'Saving Medicare, Visualized'


It should be made clear that this video was not simply made in any kind of hasty response to Tuesday night's Democratic victory in the special election for the historically safe Republican NY-26 district, and where Democrats made Ryan's proposals a key issue.

When asked for comment, Budget Committee spokesman Conor Sweeney told TPM that the video was recorded on May 13, almost two weeks ago, and posted after production finished up this week.

TPM asked Sweeney, did the public attention on the NY-26 special election factor into the decision-making process of rolling out a continued explanation of the Medicare proposals? No, Sweeney responded, it did not.
