Paul Ryan’s Speech on Medicare Today in The Villages, Florida

Below is the 4:35 video of Paul Ryan’s speech today where he discusses medicare. Here is the Associated Press summary:

Vice presidential hopeful Paul Ryan says his family relied on Medicare to take care of his grandmother, and his mother now counts on the program in retirement. Ryan on Saturday told a mostly older audience in a large Florida retirement community that Republicans will protect those in or near retirement from Medicare cuts if Mitt Romney wins the White House. Ryan pointed to his 78-year-old mother who joined him. He says he isn’t going to hurt his mother’s financial security and wouldn’t hurt others, either. He says he saw first-hand Medicare’s benefits as a child when his grandmother, with Alzheimer’s, moved in with his family. However, the 42-year-old congressman says the program needs to be overhauled during his generation so his children will be able to count on it, too.
