Dad on Paul Ryan's healthcare policy

Booyah.

On Medicare, if Ryan is so sure his voucher program is better for seniors and the budget, why does he not have the courage to propose a clean-sweep change? It’s because he knows the voucher program will screw seniors, and the seniors know it, too, that’s why the 55 cut-off. It will do nothing to hold down cost of health care in the country (it only serves to reduce government expenditures, so Ryan and the plutocrats can pay for their tax cuts for millionaires), which continues to consume more and more of our GDP, make lots of practitioners and corporations rich while producing second- and third-world outcomes. More than likely, the private insurers will pick off the healthiest seniors, and the sickest group will quickly end up on Medicaid and further drive up that programs already soaring costs.
