    so sure that seniors wouldn't reject this proposal out of hand.  

    After all, only a small percentage of them wanted to give up their standard medicare coverage to participate in the Medicare Advantage program.  

    I just don't think that most seniors would care to negotiate the minefield of private insurance companies regardless of how much a voucher would cover.

    Even tea partiers want the government to keep its hands of their medicare.
