    why aren't Romney/Ryan going to offer it to people over 55?

    Do they just hate old people?

    Or is VoucherCare really just not that awesome?

    Because Obamacare is about covering uninsured folks and those who've been kicked off their insurance because of pre-existing conditions, smart-ass. That's what makes it awesome.

    Now, on the matter of Congress, they're all on a gov't health care plan that is basically Medicare. And if Medicare is good enough for seniors, veterans, and politicians, isn't discriminatory that the rest of us can't choose that plan? After all, with the federal gov't able to negotiate lower prices, wouldn't that help to solve what ails our health care system the most?

    On the matter of Vouchercare, let me ask this: If the Romney-Ryan plan is so fucking good, than why not implement it immediately instead of waiting 10 years?

    My guess is they want to spend the 700 billion or so on Medicare that Obama wasn't going to spend. Maybe they'll throw in a bit of extra spending on the top while they're at it and claim it will lower the deficit, who knows?

    What Romney/Ryan purpose will probably work well for a period of time.

    The real issue with their plan is that after a while all the healthy seniors will have been picked off by private insurance companies leaving the system to shoulder the sickest most expensive elderly.

    Im hoping its the other way around. I'd like to think that the healthy seniors would be smart enough to stay with MEDICARE and let the sick ones get on the voucher system if they so choose. I'm betting that MEDICARE is going to remain cheaper than the voucher plan.

    Obama care, though, would be essential for folks younger than 65. Hopefully, when those covered by Obama care reach that sublime age they will have no need to opt for Medicare as all their medical needs will be fulfilled by the tenets of the PPACA.

    Further, It looks like there won't be any CAPS on Obamacare patients. Patients will be covered as long as they are sick! In that regard Obama Care is better than the present Medicare.

    After reviewing the choices, I'd say that choosing insurance under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the wisest thing to do for people under 65. But once you reach medicare age consider this: the republican's voucher system is going to assign the insured to a high risk venture that turns on the whims of the stock market. That uncertainty is bound to doom Voucher care.

    Romney/Ryan are used car salesman...they want to give you a 30 day warranty to get you out the door but will not tell you what the warranty covers...
