What happens when you advocate for "health insurance exchanges"?
The other legacy party takes your neo-liberal idea and uses it to try to privatize Medicare. Pravda:
Starting in 2022, Ryan also would end Medicare as an open-ended entitlement for new retirees and begin slowly raising the age of eligibility from 65 to 67. Instead of getting government-paid benefits, new retirees could choose a private policy on a newly established Medicare exchange. The government would pay “premium support” worth about $8,000 directly to the selected insurance provider, with the wealthiest retirees receiving about a third of that amount.
Thanks Ds, you suck. And thanks, career "progressives" -- and especially you, Jane -- because you suck, too.
I mean, Ryan just turned Medicare into a "public option" and now you've got nothing to say! Although, I grant, watching the contortions should be interesting....
