Pelosi blasts Ryan Medicare plan at convention

9/3/12 10:35 AM EDT

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Nancy Pelosi teed off on Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan, saying Democrats “created” the senior health care program and “will not let them take it away.”

In a 25-minute speech to the California Democratic Party delegation, Pelosi said that “nothing less than the character of our country” is on the ballot this November – a familiar refrain from the House minority leader, who is trying to make Republican plans to reshape Medicare a major issue for the fall campaign.

“We’re going to reject the Ryan plan, which is a transparent trick to end Medicare,” Pelosi said during a gathering over breakfast. “It’s just plain wrong to privatize, voucherize and end Medicare as we know it. So it's just plain wrong to give insurance companies…more, charge seniors more, more than $6,000 a year. It’s wrong, it’s morally wrong, it’s economically wrong.”

Pelosi headlined the breakfast, where delegates waved signs that read, “Celebrating Nancy Pelosi, 25 years of leadership.”
