VIDEO: Democrats Fight Against Ending Medicare As We Know It

August 20, 2012

Democrats have been united in fighting back against Republicans’ efforts to end the traditional Medicare guarantee. Watch:

Rep. Paul Ryan has led House Republicans in voting to end the Medicare guarantee, which increases costs on seniors in order to give tax breaks to millionaires, Big Oil, and corporations that ship jobs overseas.

As Democrats have noted, the Ryan budget would increase costs by about $6,400 for a typical Medicare beneficiary in a decade.
