Romney Says Obama Wants To ‘End Medicare As We Know It’

Mitt Romney, in addressing the press in Washington on Wednesday, directly rebutted Obama’s charge that Republicans want to “end Medicare as we know it.”

I’d be willing to consider the President’s plan, but he doesn’t have one.  That’s right:  In over three years, he has failed to enact or even propose a serious plan to solve our entitlement crisis.

Instead, he has taken a series of steps that end Medicare as we know it.

He is the only President to ever cut $500 billion from Medicare.  And, as a result, more than half of doctors say they will cut back on treating seniors.
