I would like to suggest that writers and readers have three very good websites where they can obtain "the real story" on what the candidates and their surrogates are claiming. They are: factcheck.org, which is produced by the Annenberg Center on Public Policy at the University of Pennsylvania, a nonpartisan and nonprofit organization; fact-checker at WashingtonPost.com; and the national website for the League of Women Voters at lwv.org.
Much of what is being touted about Medicare is incredibly incorrect, and the incessant negative campaign rhetoric is misleading at best, and some cases outright lies. All of the issues are complicated, to say the least, and few of us have the time or the aptitude to conduct the in-depth research that would enable us to discern the facts and make informed decisions. By checking at two or three reputable nonpartisan organization's websites, it is possible to vet the claims being made.
