Medicare "As Is" is Not an Option

The Budget War has reignited the Medicare War with both Republicans and Democrats fearful of angering Seniors (and potential Seniors) about diminished access to blank-check health care.

Polls show people want Medicare to continue "as is" --but this is not a fiscal possibility.

Medicare must be changed, and both Pres. Obama and Rep. Ryan offer ways to change it.

The President calls for top-down restriction of care by a government-appointed panel of experts. Ryan's plan calls for restriction of government payment to individuals and more individual choice.

Neither plan ends Medicare --just Medicare as it currently exists.

Neither plan supports Seniors' ability to pay for care when Medicare won't.

The debate must continue.
