Back when George W. Bush was on the campaign trail for a second term in the White House in 2003, he went on to heap praise on Congress for approving a Medicare prescription drug benefit overhaul that he was 100 percent behind. The Democratic Party had been shaking their fists at the overhaul, trying to say that the GOP wanted to try and kill the publicly funded health care program for senior citizens. However, Bush was very clear when he called out his political opponents over this false charge.
“They used to call Medicare ‘Mediscare’ for people in the political process,” Bush stated during a visit to a hospital in the nation’s capital. “Some said Medicare reform can never be done. We’re acting. We acted on principle in Washington, D.C.”
And that wasn’t the first time this false claim was made. The exact same thing happened back when Bush was running against former Vice President Al Gore in 2000.
Bush said, “The man’s running on Mediscare — trying to frighten people to the voting booth.”
So it seems accusing Republicans of wanting to kill Medicare is a tactic that has been employed by radical leftists for quite some time. Scare the crap out of the voters by making claims that those on the other side of the political spectrum want to get rid of the programs and things that group of voters likes.

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today.

The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
