Be afraid seniors, be very afraid

From Ed Morrissey this morning:
What happens when a mythbuster gets exposed as a mythmaker? Barack Obama has insisted that people who claim that $500 billion in “savings” from Medicare won’t mean any reduction in benefits. Douglas Elmendorf, director of the Congressional Budget Office, says that simply isn’t true. The cuts to Medicare Advantage, which comprise one-fifth of those savings, means reduced benefits for the 25% of seniors using the program.
Be afraid seniors. Be very afraid.

It is time (past time?) for Babyboomers, Gen. X,etc to unite against this big lie. Last I looked Babyboomers are still a large sector of the voting public. Why shouldn't all the "kings men" unite in this prevarication, as Federal employees, they will NOT be affected by the new Federalized health care plan.
