Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan may be the new Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee in 2015, if the Republicans keep control of the House of Representatives!
This is another reason to work to acquire the 17 seats needed for the Democrats to gain control.
Ryan, having a nice inheritance and a wife whose family has money, does not need to worry about the future, as most Americans do.
He is now proposing that Medicare be voluntary for those under 55, endangering the health care of those people who decide to opt out, and then, when elderly, have inferior health care. Those ignorant people who do what Ryan suggests would be given a voucher, which would not cover all health care when retired.
This is similar to the idea of George W. Bush to make Social Security voluntary for those under 55, and allow them to put their funds in the stock market, which collapsed in 2008!
So Ryan, like President Bush, wants people to gamble, and in so doing, help to destroy Medicare and Social Security!
If the funding is removed, it insures the demise of the LBJ and FDR signature programs that have made America a better place!
Is that surprising, when the GOP has set out to destroy ObamaCare, the third part of this great set of social programs, what makes America a place equal to the advanced social reforms of Europe and Japan?
