Paul Ryan’s funny money

Ryan’s proposal, individuals who turn 65 on or after January 1, 2021 would get a government voucher to buy private insurance from companies participating in a new “exchange” – a sort of insurance market similar to the ones that would be created by the Democratic health care reform legislation signed into law last year – and which Rep. Ryan opposed.
