Barack Obama, our next President

Ryan's budget seems to aim at ending Medicare,

Even though you may disagree with his opinions, Ryan is one of the most intelligent members in Congress today. Of course, there are a lot of dopes in Congress so competition is thin in that regard.
I actually think being able to add and subtract is a sig of intelligence. You? I guess not.

It's not "Ryan's Plan" now. It's "Wyden-Ryan's Plan". Why doesn't that sink in?
Preserving Medicare should be the priority of all Americans - not just the clear-thinking ones.
Sheeeat on a splinter, Carol, but you'd believe Satan if he had an R in his designation. "To listen to the Romney/Ryan ticket, you’d think the official title for their Medicare reform proposal began with the word “bipartisan.” That prefix refers to Sen. Ron Wyden, a Democrat from Oregon who joined Paul Ryan on a proposal to remake Medicare along premium-support lines. Wyden, however, has been angrily rejecting the claim that his plan is similar to Romney’s.“Gov. Romney is talking nonsense,” he said in a statement.

To be honest, however, the two plans look fairly similar to me. So I asked Wyden: How, specifically, are they different? An edited transcript of our conversation follows.

Ezra Klein: Governor Romney says his approach to Medicare reform is bipartisan because you’ve endorsed it. You say that’s wrong. So what, specifically, is the difference between your approaches?

Ron Wyden: My view is that the policies that were adopted by the Republican House majority and the Romney campaign do not preserve the Medicare guarantee. And that’s what the [Ryan/Wyden] white paper was all about. It was a set of options for improving on the existing Medicare system with public and private choices, beefing up consumer protection, adopting a new way to control costs and put Medicare on a budget so you can protect the guarantee.

Probably the two most significant specific differences between what Governor Romney is talking about and the white paper is, first, that the Romney campaign and the governor would repeal the Affordable Care Act. To lay a foundation for putting together a program to protect the guarantee and protect the budget, you need the changes the Affordable Care Act makes to Medicare, like bundled payments and moving the system towards pay-for-quality. Without it, you can’t move to premium support.

The second difference is that the Romney approach completely pulls the rug out from under the poorest and most vulnerable seniors. In the white paper, protections for so-called dual eligibles, the people in both Medicare and Medicaid, are bulletproof. There’s no way to throw them under the bus. Gov. Romney says he’d block grant the Medicaid program and push those cuts onto the people, which would do enormous harm to those people whose protection was at the center of the white paper.

When you wrote the white paper with Ryan, however, Ryan was already pushing his budget, which block grants Medicaid and repeals the Affordable Care Act. Those ideas have been core to the political project Ryan has been engaged in over the last few years. And he didn’t abandon them to sign onto your paper. So how is this different?

cont. "Mitt Romney is the head of the ticket. And the primary development since the white paper came out was that the House Republicans were not willing to accept what was in the white paper. That’s why I went to the floor when we were debating the Ryan budget in the Senate and spoke specifically against the Medicare portion and voted against it. And there’s no evidence that Gov. Romney will see the world any differently...Which is what the white paper called for — you need the kind of delivery system reforms envisioned in the Affordable Care Act to accelerate the trend toward more coordinated care and paying for quality and bundled payments. If you don’t accept those, and Gov. Romney says just rip the Affordable Care Act up and go to our form of coupon care, you’ll never had have any of these reforms."
Maybe you ought to read the whole thing--or maybe you're just more comfortable watching O'Rally bullying the nun?

You're a liar P .Izzo, the $700 billion comes from eliminating waste, fraud and abuse and increases healthcare for seniors. The CBO determined that it would extend the life of Medicare by eight years.
The Romney Ryan plan also cuts $700 billion from Medicare but decreases healthcare for seniors and ends up increasing out of pocket costs.
There are no 30 million illegal aliens in this country imbecile the number is less than half of that and is dropping and they don't get government healthcare. You're a liar and an idiot P. Izzo,; you always have been and always will be.
What a joke,$700 billion saved from waste, fraud and abuse? Are you really that stupid?

In 3 1/2 years how much has Obimbola saved?

Zero, what a dolt.

LOL, Obama was incapable of compromise. The only president in my life time that could not reach across the aisle on anything. Carter did, Reagan did, Clinton did and Bush did. Obama not so much.

All you righties obviously missed the entire health care debate. The health care insurance cartel got all you dummies all worked up about Obama killing granny...even though none of you seems to give a hoot about granny... You remind me of 4 and 5 year olds playing soccer. They all follow the ball someone kicks with no regard to the outcome .
Medicare problems are the result of the skyrocketing costs of medical care in the entire country...indeed the world. The solutions will only come if the entire system is reformed.
WE need a serious, open, honest dialogue.
THe old party held their breath and kicked and screamed for the insurance companies as the deabte went on. Republicans have no plan,,,have NEVER had a comprehensive plan. Their plan is to allow the crony corporations who have created the problem to run the show.
