Facts: Medicare and the Ryan budget

According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analysis, under the voucher program that replaces Medicare in Representative Paul Ryan’s budget adopted by Republicans in a party-line vote, most middle-income retirees would have to pay almost half of their income to purchase a Medicare equivalent insurance package by 2030. They would be paying much more than half of their income in later years.

    Ms. Fissinger, that assumes seniors will have ANY income by then. I wonder if Mr. Ryan doesn’t have a more insidious idea for them. Something unspeakable.
