Have you noticed how the Repubs say that their "voucher" plan for Medicare only applies to persons under 55 years of age. I guess this is so the current seniors don't riot at the next Romney/Ryan rally. If this is such a great solution to Medicare, why doesn't apply to everyone as soon as it is enacted into law? I guess the Repubs think seniors are just like them: "I've got mine and the hell with everyone else." Seniors, ask yourself this question: "What's to stop them from applying the new voucher program to everyone once they finish applying it to the under 55 crowd?" Answer: "Nothing!"

The Republican Voucher program for medicare
Your original insurance bill is 4,000 per year.
Republican medicare voucher is worth $1000.
You pay $3000 additional for the insurance.
Scenerio #2 The Insurance company gets wind that you are coming with a $1000 voucher for your $4000 insurance premium.
The day before you go to pay it... the insurance company RAISES the insurance to $5000.
Um... now what is that voucher worth? NOTHING.
Just like a vote for a republican....

The Premium is the Insurance Bill the Voucher Coupon is the Support........the rest of the bill is yours to pay.........Premium Support.

Ryan/Romney want us to pay for Medicare twice.......he wants us to double pay!!!!
We have been paying into Medicare & are still paying into Medicare..........now we are being told if we are 55 or younger that it will be TAKEN AWAY from us and all we get in return is a coupon & asked to pay the Insurance Company for what we already paid..........we all know how coupons work.........you get the bill, the coupon shaves a sliver off the bill, then you still pay the rest............Ryan just thinks it sounds better if you call the VOUCHER premium support........

@Ryan/Romney: Do you realize my mother's Oral Chemotherapy drugs were over $10,000.00 for 30 pills "one month supply"?????? plus all the other medications, chemotherapy, major medical expenses from being in the hospital, doctor visits, major surgery, x-rays & therapy & etc.???.........A coupon voucher will leave elderly people & those who need medical care bankrupt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.......how can a person do Hospice Care when they take your home away because the so called Premium Support plan puts you into BANKRUPTCY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????

I already Paid for my Medicare & I am still paying, now Ryan/Romney want me to pay more!
The Ryan/Romney Medicare Voucher Plan basically gives the Insurance company everything I paid into Medicare my entire life, gives me a coupon & the Insurance company still gets to send me a bill & I have to come up with the rest of the premium that the coupon doesn't cover, the premium, co-pay, the deductible, & my 20% or more of the bill?????
Paul Ryan may be living in a Russian Atheist Ayn Rand world, but I am living in the United States of America world & I have been paying in to my Medicare my entire life, now Ryan/Romney want to take it away from me & hand me a coupon voucher to pay a fraction of my insurance premium...........so let me get this straight..........I paid into Medicare & all Ryan wants to give me in return is a coupon that leaves me paying the remainder even though I already paid for my Medicare my entire life??????
