Mark Kleiman on Ryan and Medicare

What color is the sky on Jacob Weisberg’s planet? « The Reality-Based Community: "The health care costs faced by older people are not only higher, but much more variable, than those faced by younger people. So even ignoring the fact that under the Ryan plan people who retire after low-wage careers would wind up spending about 2/3 of their retirement income on Medicare-equivalent health insurance – and that’s before we even get to the stuff Medicare doesn’t cover – the proposal is simply incoherent."

Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
