All you need to know about NRO's analysis is in the paragraph

Paul Ryan’s Fiscal Framework - By Chris Edwards - The Corner - National Review Online:
"As a first step toward budget sanity, Ryan proposes further cuts to discretionary spending beyond those currently being debated. However, his main focus is on transforming the so-called entitlements. He would transition Medicare from the current Soviet-style system to one based on consumer choice. Instead of a system based on payments to health-care providers, new retirees would receive a “premium support” payment to buy a private insurance plan of their own choosing. "

Anyone that seriously uses the phrase "Soviet-Style System" in reference to Medicare is unworthy of further reading. If you want to engage in conversation on the topic at least be somewhat grounded in reality.
