Democrats are responding to the Paul Ryan VP pick by calling him "the architect of the Republican plan to kill Medicare." A spokesman for the Romney-Ryan campaign responds:

 The Romney campaign relishes this fight.  There is only one person in this race who has already cut Medicare for seniors, and that is President Obama. Obamacare cut Medicare for America’s seniors by $700 billion.  Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have a bipartisan plan to strengthen Medicare for today and tomorrow’s seniors.  Obama’s campaign has accused Mitt Romney of committing crimes and killing people, and now they have turned their smear campaign to Paul Ryan. They have lost all credibility.
