Seniors will still receive their Medicare benefits, as will those that are 10 years away from receiving by the time that any benefits would be discontinued. I can only agree with you about getting medical costs under control, but throwing another tax on the working and legal citizens (ObamaCare) is not the solution.
In case it wasn't clear, 'throwing seniors off a cliff' wasn't meant to be taken literally.
Those GOP'ers, real clever to try to make Ryan's plan not affect the current and soon-to-be seniors so they can still get their votes. Many 'youngers' are ignorant and won't realize how important Medicare is until they need it, but seniors aren't as selfish as today's younger citizens. They know how important Medicare is. They care about their sons, daughters, and grandchildren. I seriously doubt most seniors are going to be OK with Ryan's plan even if Ryan's plan doesn't affect them directly.
So, what is your solution? Dump seniors into a private system and too bad if they can't afford care because their coupon from their voucher book only covers 25% of the cost? It amazes me that people want to go back to a more private healthcare system when anyone with common sense can see what a failure it has been. Even the GOP says change in needed (but all they did was talk about it).
Oh, and what are those talk shows you listen to? Do you listen to Glenn Beck perhaps? Now that was trash when I listened to it... maybe good for entertainment, but trash if you take any of it seriously.
