With his mother Betty on the platform, Rep. Paul Ryan addresses retirees about Medicare issues and the Romney-Ryan Republican ticket. The venue is The Villages, near Orlando, Florida, on August 18, 2012.

Democrats have repeatedly claimed that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan want to “end Medicare as we know it”. In this speech, Ryan responds to that charge with particular emphasis on the $716 billion that Obamacare has already cut from Medicare funding.
