If your question is simply, "Are the Republicans using deception to screw working people?", I am guessing, "Yes."

Steve Lichtman

"Ryan, R-Wis., said he wants to "protect" people who are currently 55 or older by giving them Medicare exactly as it exists today. "We don’t want to pull the rug out from people on their way to retirement," he said." http://www.kaiserhealthnews.org/stories/2011/march/03/ryan-medicare-vouchers.aspx

Presumably so long as there was one person alive who was 55 at the time Ryan's plan went into effect, there would be at least one person still receiving current, full Medicare benefits. Weird, huh?

Robert Pierce

If Rmoney's new & improved Medicare "plan" is so freakin' awesome, why exempt today's Medicare beneficiaries.

Jim Milstein

Let's assume that the GOP plan to grandfather current Medicare is sincere. How long do you think younger voters will stand for this when they have to pay for it, but they are excluded when they come of age?

I think, not very long.
