Nice wrap-up. Polls show that voters by a 2-1 margin fear the Ryan voucher system. Unfortunately, the 2 is 30% and the 1 is 15%. That means there's another huge group of voters who are just plain confused about the two campaigns' plans for Medicare.

The Administration needs to keep plugging away at educating the public about what's at stake here. $700 Billion+ taken away from Medicare Advantage providers is not a punishment for seniors. It's a much needed check on corporate welfare and reasonable step toward strengthening Medicare benefits for ALL beneficiaries ... and not just MA plan holders.

Ryan's voucher plan is the monster under the bed for seniors. http://www.healthinsurance.org/blog/2012/08/16/paul-ryans-medicare-plan-would-pave-paradise/

Keep up the good work!
