We Stand FIRM: Catron on Obama's AARP Speech

We Stand FIRM: Catron on Obama's AARP Speech:

"Catron does some fact-checking on Obama claims, including:

"We've added years to the life of the program by getting rid of taxpayer subsidies to insurance companies that weren't making people healthier"

"[O]ver the next 10 years, we expect the average Medicare beneficiary to save nearly $5,000 as a result of this law"

"We lengthened the life of the trust fund by eight years"

"Their plan replaces guaranteed Medicare benefits with a voucher that wouldn't keep up with costs"
