For two years, Paul Ryan has stood before the nation and offered budgets that dramatically cut the federal government's contribution to Medicare because he claims we can't afford it. Yet, Paul Ryan joined 215 other Republicans in passing Medicare Part D over the objections of all Democrats. Medicare Part D was an unfunded expansion of Medicare that prevented Medicare Administrators from negotiating bulk purchase pricing for prescription drugs. The cost of Medicare Part D has made controlling the cost of Medicare nearly impossible. Medicare Part D was a poison pill designed to destroy Medicare by making it impossible to manage costs. President W Bush's Comptroller General Walker called Medicare Part D the most fiscally irresponsible piece of legislation in modern American history, costing us over $1T to date and creating a $17T federal government obligation. General Walker resigned and traveled the country warning American's of the fiscal Armageddon on the horizon. Paul Ryan supported Medicare Part D in 2003, and now since we can no longer manage costs, he is calling for us to cap the federal government's contribution. Representative Ryan is a fraud of the worse rank.
