We know one thing for sure about Mitt Romney.  He is not a big game player, you know those stars who always do their best in playoff or championship games.   Faced with the most important choice of his sputtering campaign, Romney blew it.  He chose a boring, rightist Congressman from the Milwaukee suburbs.  Paul Ryan may look good to Romney but his supporters preferred another by far, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida. 

Ryan compensates for his boring demeanor with a truly mean spirited political program that threatens to deny medical care for many seniors if his budget is enacted.  He swaps out government payments for vouchers in a system that will make medical care unaffordable to seniors.  That should sell well among those seniors who prefer a premature, unnecessary death caused by a lack of medical care.

Nice work Mitt!

Take a look at Ryan's plan for Medicare.  It combines  government voucher payments with senior out of pocket payments.   By 2022, the government will pay $6,000 and seniors will have a $14,000 obligation for coverage.  That $14,000 represents 35% of the estimated senior  median senior income.  Who needs death panels?
