Columbia Journalism Review: Ryan’s Plan WOULD End Medicare, PolitiFact Wrong

I am not going to comment on PolitiFact’s own politics (as the Wall Street Journal did), the notion of fact-checking balance that interested other commentators, or the notion that PolitiFact’s time has come and gone. The fact is Republicans by supporting Ryan’s voucher plan did essentially vote to end Medicare.
