Really how is it traditional? Under Ryan’s plan Medicare would no longer make payments to health care providers such as doctors and hospitals after 2024,when the voucher system starts.

That's because Ryan is using private insurance companies and Medicare advantage to make the payments and those who go with the private plan, then like in Obamacare, the government will pay the private insurance companies who then pay the doctors +.

It doesn't matter much. Ryancare, Obamacare, Medicare .... none of them can work financially. They are all pipedreams, colorful election campaign tools that the next few administrations can stumble over

I will be enrolled in the existing system and I tell my kids they are screwed
