In reply to Barbara Deleon's Oct. 27 letter, I believe she doesn't listen very closely to what Mitt Romey and Paul Ryan are saying about their Medicare program.

Nothing will change for those now on Medicare and for those 55 years old and older. The Medicare voucher choice is for people under 55 years old.

Under Obamacare, you will be lucky to get a doctor to schedule you. One of my doctors told me he and many of his friends will only set aside a few hours a week for Medicare patients, if they take any at all.
