One criticism Rand Paul definitely does not deserve 

Democrats are now attacking Kentucky GOP Senate nominee Rand Paul for seeing Medicare patients.

Kentucky GOP Senate candidate Rand Paul says he opposes federal handouts, but the eye doctor takes government payments for treating Medicare and Medicaid patients.

The dichotomy has drawn taunts of hypocrisy from his Democratic opponent, Jack Conway who on Tuesday called on Paul to quit “stonewalling” and release his Medicare billing records.

“When it comes to government spending that benefits Paul, suddenly deficits don’t matter,” Conway’s campaign said in a release this week.

That’s lovely — so is Paul supposed to be the heartless doctor who won’t take Medicare or Medicaid patients? What would the Dems and the Associated Press say then?
