#2 Oct 4, 2012 Ryan Plan that passed the House in 2011 is most famous, however,for its multiple step plan to phase out Medicare. Let us say that againso we are perfectly clear about what the Ryan Plan does to Medicare.It does not just “end Medicare as we know it” and it certainly does not “reform” Medicare.”The Ryan Plan simply ends Medicare,Stage One, Vouchers: Ten years after the Ryan Plan takes effect,it eliminates traditional Medicare entirely and replaces it with a voucher systemthat seniors can use to by a private health plan. Although this proposal does producesmall savings for government when it takes effect, it does so by massively increasingthe out-of-pocket costs to American seniors. According to the Congressional Budget Office,total health expenditures for a typical 65-year-old “would be almost 40 percent higher withprivate coverage under the [Ryan] plan than they would be with a continuation oftraditional Medicare” in the first year that the Ryan Plan is in effect.

Former President George W. Bush (left) and Congressman Paul Ryan (right). Bush had a plan in 2005 to privatize Social Security and Paul Ryan was the house sponsor of the bill.
