The current presidential campaigns of Mitt Romney and U.S. President Barack Obama dueled Wednesday over Medicare, a subject that could help both candidates in the November presidential elections.
Meanwhile President Obama continued to course through Iowa on the third and final day of a bus tour, while Romney’s Republican surrogates scheduled events in Dubuque and Davenport where Obama is speaking this Wednesday. Romney would highlight Obama’s decision to “cut $716 billion from Medicare to pay for his disastrous health care law.”
Obama’s campaign has not wasted any time to denounce the plans of Rommey’s running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, to overhaul Medicare and pointed out that Ryan’s proposed budgets would leave the same setback that he and Romney are now condemning. AV
