    You are right about medicaid.  But the truly insidious way that Ryan-Romney would destroy Medicare is that it segments the system.  Once you do, support for traditional Medicare will erode from people who are not in the traditional system.  It will divide Americans against each other into those that have the traditional system and those that don't.  Once that occurs it will be easier to destroy what is left of the traditional system.  This is the same divide and conquer tactics that Bush tried with social security privatization.  Don't fall for it!
