    Even if Ryan's proposal only affected those under 55, that wouldn't change anything, because people are smart enough to realize that people under 55 will eventually need Medicare. All the ten years does is allow him to nakedly appeal to self-centered retirees who might be theoretically not bother to oppose a plan that is terrible for everyone under 55, but which doesn't hurt them personally. AFAIK, older folks care a great deal about their kids and grandkids, and won't support a plan that hurts them.

    BTW, the term is "demagogle", not "demigod".
