"I think they know their plan is not very popular. You can tell that because they're being pretty dishonest about my plan. Here's what you need to know, I have made reforms that have saved millions of seniors with Medicare hundreds of dollars on their prescription drugs." [Obama was referencing the fact that Obamacare closed the donut hole that has saved seniors on their cost of prescription drugs, which Romney and Ryan would reinstate.]

"I have proposed reforms that will save Medicare money by getting rid of wasteful spending in the system. Reforms that will not touch your Medicare benefits, not by a dime."
"They [Romney & Ryan] have a very different plan. They want to turn Medicare into a voucher program. That would end the guarantee of Medicare, the CBO study showed that the Ryan plan would cost seniors an extra $6,400 per year."

"My plan has already extended Medicare by a decade. Their plan ends Medicare as we know it. My plan reduces the cost of Medicare by cracking down fraud, and waste, and subsidies to insurance companies. Their plan makes seniors pay more so they can give another tax cut to millionaires and billionaires. That's the difference between our plans on Medicare, that's an example of the choice in this election, and that is why I'm running for a second term as President of the United States of America."
