Final presidential debate: Unanswered questions
Paul Ryan and his deceptive Medicare Plan for Seniors!
How could he provide the Medicare Services for current seniors and people 55 year old and up for the next 30 to 40 years while no contribution coming in from the younger working folks?
A few months ago I posted an iReport titled "Analyze This" on this subject for deceitful presentation and/or justification of Ryan Medicare Plan, and on the eve of the V.P. Debate, I would like to express my concern for his reckless plan for American seniors one more time.
Rep. Ryan voucher plan with its devastating effect on American seniors is discussed numerous times but Ryan's misleading and fallacious claim to provide the Medicare Services for retired seniors and people now 55 year old and up, has not been analyzed and/or scrutinized, at least to my knowledge.
The fact is that Rep. Ryan wants to rid of the best healthcare plan for the American seniors for good, but in order to win the election and not alienate the senior voters he indicates that Medicare is in no danger for current seniors, of course for political purposes.
His plan mathematically is impossible, is empty promise and is for the lack of better word is "Baloney". Additionally, it will jeopardize the current seniors' Medicare services and here's the reason:
Today with everyone's contribution, there's this notion that the Medicare program is not sustainable and will go bust in a few years. So how could Ryan's plan provide Medicare for seniors for the next 30 to 40 years if nobody contributing except for the first 10 years with contributions from some people, 55 to 65, if employed?
So is this coming from his intellect or he was just napping in math classes in grade school? Or he is just callous and does not care?
I'm not even going to expand on Ryan's terrible Voucher Plan and its adverse affect on future seniors but only I'd like to note that, contrary to GOP propaganda for small government, the size of government will increase by having 2 entity:
1- Medicare Services Department
2- Voucher Services Department
We must save the Medicare and improve it for seniors and there are many ways to achieve that.
