Let's start at the bottom.
SOT 05:40:51

((MARK WARNER/D-SENATE CANDIDATE: FAMILY AND MEDICAL LEAVE. HE CLEARLY VOTED AGAINST IT.))
runs=:02


No argument there.
John Warner calls the popular law a Clinton campaign promise and an unfunded federal mandate.
He says employers were already giving time off to workers when they needed it.
Reality check-- how much of that's just wishful thinking?
Cuts to school lunches?
John Warner fought against his own party's proposed cuts in committee.
But he voted for them in the larger budget.
The so-called 270- Billion dollar cut to Medicare is the thorniest to explain.
The GOP budget would have only cut the proposed inflation- based INCREASE.
John Warner says he supported it to keep Medicare from going bankrupt.
SOT 05:41:52

((MARK WARNER: CALL IT WHATEVER. SLOWING THE INCREASE. A CUT. IT'S 270- BILLION DOLLARS LESS THAN WAS PREVIOUSLY PLANNED. AND IT WOULD HAVE REQUIRED SENIORS TO PAY LITERALLY HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS MORE TO GET THEIR MEDICARE SERVICES.))
RUNS=:12


To complicate matters, Mark Warner says he's for a cut in the increase too -- but a smaller one.
sot 05:40:53

((STUDENT LOANS. HE VOTED TO CUT TEN MILLION DOLLARS. HIS WORDS, THIS SUMMER, AT THE DEBATE WERE "YOU BET I DID." HE THOUGHT THE PROGRAM WAS RUNNING AMOK. I DISAGREE.))
