If you look above, I only mentioned Medicaid. And I'm not saying that they don't need fixing. I only pointed out that he blasted "Obamacare" for making some cuts while trying to fix it, but then his plan would basically do the same thing. The difference, the Ryan plan would give states a block grant with an annual cap that would be adjusted to population growth and inflation. I don't know about you, but last I checked, the cost of healthcare was going up by more than inflation. Not only that, but basing increases on population growth is just dumb. If the population goes down, there would be less money for that state for Medicaid. Since when is poverty tied to population?
Oh, and no one commented on him requesting federal funds from a program that he called wasteful.
Correct sir, you only mentioned Medicaid, but they are all in the same boat. Every single one of them.
And he blasted PPACA for a long list of VALID reasons, not just the cutting of funds to Medicare. $716 billion dollars worth.
The difference between them is what they funds do once cut. In PPACA they are used to cover increase costs to the general healthcare fund. Done while mandating the state increase the roll to the program (which was struck down by SCOTUS). Where as the Ryan plan didn't spend the funds elsewhere.
But this really doesn't matter as he's acknowledged that we, the people, didn't like that. And they have a new revised plan that puts that fund back in Medicare.
And as far as the remaining system, you don't have to take part in the voucher system. You can chose to remain in the existing system if you want, it's YOUR option.
And that only applies to people 54 and younger, everyone else doesn't get touched at all.
But, since you are demonizing the Ryan proposal, you apparently think we should stick with the "Obama way?"
