Republican Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan is trying to hide just how devastating his budget plans would be for seniors on Medicare. Recently he falsely claimed House Republicans "passed a budget to save Medicare." The reality is exactly the opposite.
Experts say the budget Ryan proposed last year would have ended Medicare as we know it, and now Ryan has pledged that this year's House Republican budget will be the same as last year's -- one that ends Medicare.
In fact, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office says that elderly people would pay more for health care under the Republican plan.
Too many seniors are already struggling - they can't afford a plan that could almost double their health care costs.
Take action now: Tell Paul Ryan to get his facts straight! America's seniors can't afford his dangerous budget.
Recently you claimed that House Republicans "passed a budget to save Medicare" and "we donít change any benefit for anybody 55 and above." But experts agreed that the plan you proposed in 2011 would actually have ended medicare as we know it.

I'm worried to hear this year's budget plan will be the same as last year's, one that would almost double health care costs for seniors and would reinstate the "doughnut hole." Our seniors can't afford this dangerous budget!
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
