I think it was Josh Barro of Bloomberg who has pointed out that Romney has moved to the left of Obama on Medicare.
Conservatives who were excited by the Ryan pick had to be a little confused that the Romney campaign, at the exact same time, began to disavow almost all Medicare reform plans by both guys on their ticket. It's all about keeping the senior citizen vote, even if it means dumping on the young and poor via massive, brutal slashes to Medicaid...which also spends a huge amount of money on seniors, but they're betting on voters not being as aware of that.
