    President Obama ended the tax gift to Medicare Advantage. You have to understand/know what Medicare Advantage IS to get what that means.

    - When you turn 65, you get Medicare A (free) & B (small fee)
    - Medicare pays about 80% of the claim.
    - Private Insurance Cos sell "supplements" which cover the other 20%.
    - Medicare Advantage is a plan where you sign ALL of your Medicare benefits over to the For-Profit Insurance Co for them to then administer for you (which means they can deny claims that Medicare MUST cover.)
    - The GOP (via For-Profit Insurers) came up with it because it For-Profit Insurers told them to.
    - PBO ended that, along with the fraud and other waste - see the BIG STING that happened yesterday - which is just ONE of the many that have already happened. http://www.reuters.com/...

    Ryan basically just wants to put the Insurance Cos back in charge of embezzling everyone's money.
