It isn't the worst case scenario. It is based on the figures that the trustees work with all the time. Why do you think both candidates are attempting to cut back Medicare? Time for FactCheck to stop playing Obama shill as this will bite them the same as "Obama did not take money out of Medicare to pay for ObamaTax" has.<quoted text>that was the MOST pessimistic estimate...in other words worst case scenario
that's where all you tards live isn't it? eternally frightened and expecting disaster at every turn...yep, that's you
Now if you are younger, you have two choices. Continue with old system that has a panel that will trigger spending cuts to keep Medicare from going totally bankrupt or the Ryan plan that will allow you the option to buy private insurance with the money you would have paid into the Medicare.
This debate is not about the elderly. It is about the next generation determining their future health care.
