On today’s radio program,

“The only one who’s cut Medicare” is the Obama administration.” He refers to the $716 billion that both sides have accused the other of cutting.

This has been debunked by many. Clearly both sides have moved $716 billion around but do they represent cuts? Try:

Another comment: Bill Maher “is a bit of a jerk.”

Maher is, at times, caustic, uncivil and disrespectful. But those words, rather than “jerk,” would be more appropriate.
