Campaign battle over Medicare comes to New Hampshire
Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are doubling down on claims the other would threaten seniors' golden years.
Both campaigns sharpened their critique of the other's Medicare policies in recent days and planned to intensify them yet again on Sunday, as the already acrimonious race for the White House reached a new level. Spokespeople for both presidential contenders are ready to challenge the record of the other.
Romney's running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, on Saturday told seniors here on Florida's western coast that he sees parallels with Europe's debt crisis that cut seniors' benefits. He warned the same could happen right here at home if U.S. debts aren't brought down.
Campaigning in New Hampshire, Obama said it is a sure thing that Romney would tear apart Medicare.
