The claim that House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s budget would end Medicare is the “lie of the year,” according to the fact-checking website Politifact.
According to Politifact’s analysis, saying the Ryan plan “ends Medicare” overlooks the fact that its changes would not affect people 55 and older. Politifact also said Medicare would remain in existence, but in a different form — which Ryan’s critics say is the same thing as ending Medicare.

To be honest, Politifact got it wrong last year, when they said that the Death Panels were the lie of the year, in spite of the evidence to the contrary. However, it’s interesting to see the regressive reation to being called out on their lies.
Come to think of it, none of the regressive sources decided to mention that ObamaCare drains $500,000,000,000 from Medicare, did they?
