  1. Joni Simon says:

    Senator Rubio,

    I heard you this morning on Fox. You were quite convincing when speaking about the future of Medicare. Keep stressing that anyone
    (Obama, Representatives, Senators, Americans)opposed to Paul Ryan’s plan is obligated to put forth a plan of their own.

    However, when asked a question which would in greater detail explain
    Ryan’s plan, you wouldn’t answer the question. You avoided it twice… WHY? Do hammer home the realities of Obama’s ideas.

    I follow the news closely, and I still don’t fully understand Ryan’s plan:
    1. Will there still be a need for MediGap plans?
    (If not, you will be fighting AARP.)
    2. What happens to Part D?
    3. What happens if the plans offered by the Insurance
    Companies are greatly more expensive than the voucher
    amount. Mr. Ryan stated that it would be like the
    plan he has. GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF HIS PLAN COMPARED
    TO HIS PROPOSED PLAN TO SAVE MEDICARE.
    4. People under 55 years of age would be paying the
    same payroll tax for Medicare coverage which may
    fall short of adequate coverage.

    Although I am a Senior and would be exempt, I still evaluate any
    plan proposed personally.
