    Liberal Trope:
    “Ryan wants to destroy Medicare.”

    By now the details of the Wyden-Ryan Medicare plan are well known. Avik Roy explains:

    the Wyden-Ryan Medicare plan—so named because it was coauthored by progressive Sen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore.) —
    only applies to Americans younger than 55 years of age, and
    gives those younger individuals the option of remaining in the traditional Medicare program,
    or choosing a comparable private-sector insurance plan.

    The policy-wonk term for this approach is “competitive bidding,” an idea that originated with Democrats. The Wyden-Ryan plan is nearly identical to one that was introduced a few weeks earlier by Mitt Romney.

    Yes. Competitive bidding..... Which will leave companies unable to afford coverage for anyone who actually needs it.

    No, I do not believe the lying Democrats.

    If you're over 55, you have nothing to fear with Ryan's plan.

    If you're under 55, you have MUCH to fear with Dems who want no changes.

    Not me. :eusa_hand:I believe he will destory those, who are 55 and under that will be so lucky to be under his Medicare voucher plan. "Only applies to those under 55"? Hell thats all my children. So he will spare me and destory my children and I am suppose to thank him and give him a blessing? FY and Ryan. :mad:

    There will be no "traditional" medicare plan under Ryan plan. It is vouchers are none at all. You are confused with Obamacare and the medicare voucher plan.

    Why would competitive "bidding" leave companies to ???
    Makes no sense! Companies will NOT be buying coverage???
    This is NOT employee insurance! It is very simple much like Medicare Advantage plans in existence NOW... Over 600 companies (one covers me..) have bid with Medicare to provide Medicare services most at a monthly payment to the company of $800.00.
    And it works like a charm for all concerned.
    for example how much fraud do you think is present in Medicare Advantage plans that Medicare pays for? ZERO! Because the MA is responsible for services. Medicare pays a flat rate and that's it!!!

    She is Willfully Ignorant on the Subject. Don't bother trying to make her actually look at the facts, Libs say it's going to Destroy Medicare, so in her mind it has to be true.
