Ryan Fights Back on Medicare

House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) is out with another nifty floating charts video explaining why Medicare is in such desperate need of saving, and how Republicans plan to do just that. “We can no longer let politicians in Washington deny the danger to Medicare,” Ryan said in a statement. “The danger is all too real, and the health of our nation’s seniors is far too important.”

“This video lays out the clear choice our nation faces on Medicare: Will Medicare become a program in which a board of bureaucrats manages its bankruptcy by denying care to seniors? Or will leaders work together to save and strengthen Medicare by empowering seniors to choose health care plans that work best for them, with less support for the wealthy and more help for the poor and the sick?  House Republicans have advanced solutions to save Medicare. Instead of working with us, the leaders of the Democratic Party have opted to play politics with the health security of America’s seniors.”

“Washington has not been honest with you about Medicare.”
