Well, isn’t that sweet. Speaking in the Villages, Fla., Paul Ryan said his grandmother relied on Medicare and that his mother currently counts on the program. Ryan brought his 78-year-old mother along to the campaign rally at the world’s largest retirement community, which has been known to slant heavily Republican. Ryan tried to paint President Obama’s health-care plan as cutting Medicare, although Ryan has long pushed for privatizing the federal program. Obama is expected to push that point at a campaign rally in New Hampshire on Saturday.
