Facts Matter: Medicare
“In addition to focusing on job creation, my husband multitasks. He was also focused on improving access to health care for millions of Americans. (Applause.)

And today, because of health reform, our parents and grandparents on Medicare are paying hundreds less for their prescription drugs — today.”
-First Lady Michelle Obama
