President Obama said the following during his jobs speech last night:

“Millions of Americans rely on Medicare in their retirement….But with an aging population and rising health care costs, we are spending too fast to sustain the program. And if we don’t gradually reform the system while protecting current beneficiaries, it won’t be there when future retirees need it. We have to reform Medicare to strengthen it.”

Isn’t that what Paul Ryan and the House Republicans have been saying for months, while Obama has been busy demagoguing their plan?
