Paul Ryan says he'll fix Medicare with vouchers and we will continue to have the same quality care. Are these the same kind of vouchers that both parties used to take out Social Security money for pet programs and projects for the last 40 years?
Vouchers like IOU's that were supposed to be paid back but never were and now are causing the insolvency of Social Security. U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has taken more than four months medical leave without letting his boss (the taxpayer) know.
He never missed a payday besides getting the best medical care. I get no such deal, and a voucher won’t put me on par with Congress, not even close! Put the voucher idea in an easily tested group like Congress and let’s see how good it works. After two years, all doubt about the voucher system would be clear.
Who has the entitlement programs anyhow, Congress or their constituents? Quit testing those dumb, unproven theories on taxpayers and test it on yourselves first.
