Paul Ryan’s Medicare Plan…

   …. Is not getting the support that Ryan and the rest of the Republican Party had hoping for.  Maybe the American citizens have wised up a little more since Ryan and the GOP tried this same plan back in 2010?

   A new United Technologies/National Journal poll:

Asked what Medicare should look like in the future, just 26 percent said it “should be changed to a system where the government provides seniors with a fixed sum of money they could use either to purchase private health insurance or to pay the cost of remaining in the current Medicare program.” Fully 64 percent said “Medicare should continue as it is today, with the government … paying doctors and hospitals directly for the services they provide to seniors.”

    Better luck next time, Mr. Ed Ryan.
