Paul Ryan Is Lying In Order To Destroy Medicare #ProtectOurCare #HandsOffMedicare

What Ryan and his fellow Republicans refuse to admit is that Medicare is the best part of the nation’s health care system.

Medicare works. It’s far more efficient, cost effective, and affordable than private sector health insurance. Not surprisingly, it’s also a lot more popular. It should be extended to all of us.

Instead, House Speaker Paul Ryan is working hard to destroy Medicare and force seniors and people with disabilities into the arms of private, for-profit health insurers. Ryan wants to end Medicare as we know it and, instead, simply give seniors and people with disabilities fixed cash stipends to fend for themselves, unprotected, on the private market.

Ironically, Ryan is proposing to convert Medicare into the very system he is rushing to repeal — the Affordable Care Act (“ACA” or “Obamacare”) — but without its protections, such as the requirement that private insurers cover those with pre-existing conditions.
