Paul Ryan Says Medicare Privatization Is On
So here we go the SOBs aren't even in office but the attack is well underway...Ryan is tying Medicare to ACA in an attempt to voucher Medicare and ripoff retirees..
And you people believe Republicans represent the people, they represent a narrowly defined sector of the wealthy...

Privatization is the boondoggle..we've seen the failure of private insurance in the double digit yearly increases...no such increases have occurred in the government regulated Medicare Program.

Privatization will put Medicare in the same boat ( Titanic ) as the rest of private plans...unaffordable...

Donald Trump promised to keep Social Security and Medicare as is, but I don't believe Trump is much on keeping promises.

To all the Boomers who voted Republican shame on you...
you dummies shot yourselves in the foot..

Paul Ryan’s wish to privatize Medicare, or phase it out, depending on how you want to look at it.

The GOP’s voucher plan works this way:

•           Rather than you going to your doctor and Medicare pays the bill, under CouponCare the federal government will give you a voucher each year that you will then use to go out and buy private insurance out in the open market or to pay for Medicare.

•           However, those coupons’ values are based on the cost of Medicare in a particular community or the second lowest private health insurance plan, whichever is cheaper.  So if, you choose to stay in traditional Medicare, and it costs more than virtually the cheapest plan out there, you’ll pay more.  Let’s be really clear, vouchers are designed to shift costs to seniors.  That’s how the government saves money.

The Kaiser Family Foundation estimates 59% of seniors would have to pay higher premiums in order to receive the same Medicare plans they now have, with the average premium increase coming in at $107 per month, they didn’t even look at co-pays and out-of-pocket costs.

The Congressional Budget Office looked at this in 2011 and said it would double beneficiaries’ costs.

After George Bush won re-election in 2004 and the Republicans controlled Congress, privatizing Social Security was the first order of business.  Here were go again -- but this time your Medicare is the target. The American people don’t support privatizing Medicare; however, it has long been the goal of conservatives who believe seniors should be forced back into a private insurance marketplace which history has proven, over and over again, they simply can’t afford.
