    From your article:

    The administration has accepted applications from 18 states to participate in the program, which would give states money to purchase managed-care plans for people who are either disabled or poor enough to qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid. HHS approved the first state plan, one for Massachusetts, last month.

    Ryan's plan would be to give seniors a limited amount and tell them to go find their own health care.

    Besides, what do right wingers care about a bunch of old people anyway. We know they don't care about the middle class and we know they hate the poor. So for them to attack a plan where they think people get less help doesn't make sense. Remember "let him die"? Remember "Feed the poor and they will breed"?

    I assume "voucher" is in quotation marks because it's being used ironically here.

    Or because the author meant to (but apparently forget to) look it up before posting this silly article.

    Death Panels my azz! And of course insurers are 10x as bad NOW than "end of life counseling", which would leave it up to doctors and families, MORON Pub dupes.

    I actually saw it yesterday. Surprisingly enough, everyone pretended it didn't say anything about vouchers.
