    Default Republicans find themselves on Medicare hot seat

    Now it’s their turn to try to fix the health care mess. Republicans, just like President Barack Obama, may discover that’s easier said than done.
    The GOP budget expected to go to the full House this week would remake health care programs for the elderly and the poor that have been in place for nearly half a century. Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., says his approach would “save” Medicare by keeping the financially troubled program affordable for federal taxpayers.
    But it turns out that people now 54 and younger would pay the price.
    By one authoritative estimate, they’d be on the hook for most of their own health care costs after they become eligible for Medicare as retirees. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office says the typical beneficiary would be expected to pay more than two-thirds of his or her medical costs by the year 2030.

    It's for the kids is not much of a thought.

    Ryan's plan call for medicare to be replaced by vouchers toward health care insurance seniors will have to purchase causing seniors to pay more out of pocket for the same coverage we have now. If his plan goes into effect those over 55 will still have the same medicare plan as we have today. It would only affect those under 55 years old.

    I suggest the people under 55 put more money away not only for retirement but to pay for their health insurance coverage as well.

    Let's not forget that while they are doing all this saving for retirement, they have to pay for living today, college for their kids in the future, etc.

    Won't be possible to save the money required. Better have a nice shiny bullet handy for the day you get bad news from your Doc.

    Agreed. It is unrealistic to restructure your entire retirement plans in a 10 year window. Not impossible, but I doubt many would like the numbers when worked out. But that's what millions of workers have had to do anyway regarding pensions being yanked, benefits cut, etc...

    Just listen to Capt. Sully, who landed on the Hudson talk about what ALPA members have endured recently.
