Video: Rep. Paul Ryan Gets Booed at AARP for Attacking Obamacare

| by Michael Allen

Speaking to the AARP’s National Annual Conference in New Orleans, on Friday, vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan was booed by the audience when he promised to repeal Obamacare (video below).

Rep. Ryan claimed that "Obamacare weakens Medicare" and served as a "piggy bank for Obamacare" which elicited boos from the audience.

ThinkProgress.org reports that Rep. Ryan also denied that his health care plan would replace Medicare with a voucher, even though he has previously said “you can call it a voucher.”

Rep. Ryan falsely compared his health care plan to the current federal health care plan: the Federal Employee Health Benefits Plan.
