Soledad O'Brien fact checked Romney surrogate John Sununu and unsurprisingly finds his claims completely bogus. The fact that all three (Obama, Ryan, and even Romney himself) are in agreement with the cut, or "permanent reduction", is lost in Sununu's verbiage.

And that in a nutshell is what this election is all about: ever more money for millionaires or genuine services for the less affluent.
