Ending Medicare as we know it
Romney and Ryan are committed to a plan that would end
Medicare as we know it. They would create a voucher system
that would increase seniors’ health costs. Ryan even
proposed a plan, which Romney endorsed, that would increase
costs for seniors by $6,350 a year. To cover for their own
plan, they have been distorting the President’s record.
They have labeled the $700 billion that Obamacare saved
from trimming excessive payments to corporate insurance
companies as “Medicare cuts.” That’s false, as Paul Ryan
should know — he includes these savings in his own budget.
