Statements about Medicare

Medicare "premium support" backed by Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan "is not vouchers."

Congress gave an unelected board "the power to deny care to seniors."

"Current projections indicate that Medicare will go bankrupt by 2017, while Social Security will bottom out by 2037."

The premiums on Medicare’s prescription drug program have fallen almost every year since it began.
