Bucshon repeats GOP lies, deceit

I received a mailing from Rep. Larry Bucshon containing the usual GOP lies and deceit. The record needs to be set straight on all of the GOP lies and deceit.

Bucshon’s mailing says it’s the Dems that want to gut Medicare. As I recall, it’s the Paul Ryan Budget Plan, as explained by Paul Ryan to his GOP base, that not only guts Medicare, it does the same to Medicaid, and would reduce benefits and privatize Social Security.

One of the many lies Romney and Ryan tell on the campaign trail is that Obama stole $716 million out of Medicare. Verified reports show that the $716 million Obama took out of Medicare was in the area of waste, fraud, and abuse. That $716 million was given back to senior citizens in the form of lower drug costs.

At the GOP convention, Romney promised that if you elect him and the GOP, they’ll create jobs. Isn’t that what Obama and the Dems have tried to do for the last three years? The GOP has not allowed it to happen. The GOP Congress has voted “no” or filibustered all of Obama’s job bills. The latest was passed in the Senate and sent to the House over two years ago. The GOP/Tea Party House has never even brought that bill to a vote.

So the GOP Extortion Plan is, elect Romney/Ryan and the GOP and they’ll create jobs. But if you re-elect Obama, they’ll keep filibustering and voting no. You either play ball with the GOP or they’ll take the gall and go home.

Mr. Caleb Fleschner may have a legitimate complaint about being excluded from the Labor Day Parade. I find it strange that Mr. Fleschner is complaining about having his chances of getting elected suppressed by the Labor Council. The GOP in 30 Red States are suppressing and denying former voters the right to vote in November, and just by chance, those being denied usually vote Democratic.
