Paul Ryan's Medicare Privatization Scheme Edging Closer to Reality
Paul Ryan’s dystopian dream of privatizing Medicare may soon come true. At least he seems to think so. In an interview with right-wing Wisconsin radio host Vicki McKenna, the House Speaker said that Medicare “reform” is coming to the Capitol this Spring. “I’m pretty sure the budget committee in the House will pass that on in the House Republican budget,” Ryan said. In fact, House Budget Committee Chair Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has already promised to include Medicare privatization in the budget process later this month. This is scary news for millions of current and future retirees.
