Seniors not buying Dem Mediscare on Ryan Budget 

Gallup has their first round of polling out on Paul Ryan’s Path to Prosperity and the results are encouraging for conservatives:. While “the Republican plan put forth by Congressman Paul Ryan” falls one point short (43%) of “the Democratic plan put forth by President Barack Obama” (44%) the splits among age groups are noteworthy:

Ryan’s plan includes a complete restructuring of Medicare for people younger than 55. Pluralities of middle-aged Americans as well as those 65 and older prefer Ryan’s plan to Obama’s, while adults 18 to 29 show more support for Obama’s, 53% to 30%. These findings are in line with approval of Obama by age, more generally.

The key here is to keep reminding Americans that the Ryan plan does not touch Medicare for people 55 and over. This is why the left it so upset with ABC News and Politifact calling Democrat attacks on the Ryan plan lies. The left thought the media would play along with their Medicare scare tactics. So far, they have not.
