Former Vice Presidential candidate, Rep. Paul Ryan is the author and champion of plans to “save” Medicare through privatization. If his plans come to pass, the popular community Medicare program that guarantees certain benefits would be replaced. Instead, individuals eligible for Medicare would get an annual allowance to shop for their own insurance, which would have varying benefits and costs. If only the logic of the Ryan plans was as clear as his determination to change Medicare into a set of capped vouchers.
