The $700 Billion Medicare Raid
I asked this in another thread but maybe it got buried. I'll start a new one because I really want to know. You know how sometimes you read things in a row and then suddenly the dots all connect, as they say?

Is the reason they kept repeating the $700 billion lie is because it was actually a dog whistle?

Is that why 47% of Floridians said Romney would do better on Medicare? They believed him when he said Obama stole $700 billion from Medicare to pay for Obamacare?

Obamacare being FREE health care for "insert racial epithet"?

Is that really what that was all about? If so, did you know it all along and I'm just that slow to catch on to some of this stuff? How much more of this stuff that I sit flummoxed over is actually a dog whistle I can't hear?

RE: The $700 Billion Medicare Raid
I think you have a valid point SnS.

Part "the sky is falling" scare tactic, part "clutch your purses there is a black guy walking this way" racist fear mongering and part "Red baiting" since they consider Obamacare a socialist plot to take over the health care system.

It touched so many of the boxes they needed to use that it was irresistible to them. Much the same way the "death panel" meme was so compelling an argument for them.
