Ryan budget plan would effectively end Medicare

August 24, 2012

Paul Ryan on the Republican ticket with Mitt Romney gives us a clear picture of where our country is headed if this team gets elected. The power of the wealthy will expand at the expense of the middle class and the poor.

Medicare is just one example. Instead of the coverage on which seniors now depend, a limited amount of vouchers will be issued to purchase the best deal you can get from an insurance company that's in business to make as much profit as possible. And you're on your own beyond what the insurance company will pay.

By contrast, Democrats will keep Medicare strong and solvent, with up to 80 percent of your medical bills paid no matter how big they are.

The Republican plan would be devastating to individuals and families. So think hard about which party you should vote for in November.
