Ryan: "We’re Not Going To Give Up On Destroying The Health Care System"

Talk about Freudian slips. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) revealed his party's true intentions during a news conference regarding his latest budget plan. Ryan, who has pushed to destroy Medicare through Vouchercare and is again calling for the repeal of Obamacare, said regarding the latter, “We believe that this law is going to collapse under its own weight… This to us is something that we’re not going to give up on, because we’re not going to give up on destroying the health care system for the American people.” Watch Ryan's determined pledge on behalf of us all:

Telling, isn't it? But seriously: I have been an advocate of universal coverage, Medicare for all, if you will. But it behooves us to investigate why many of the established practitioners are no longer participating in the Medicare program. I know many seniors who are having a difficult time finding quality health care unless they are willing to pay for services over and above Medicare allowances. Also, my experience, as I continue to try to set up a dental clinic mainly for those who, for whatever reasons, cannot afford oral health care at a private facility, clearly indicates that those patients for whom no payment is required - by law - display far less respect for the time reserved for them than those who must open their wallets at each appointment. Health care is in dire need of reform, no doubt, but acceptable patient behavior is an important issue as well. There must be consequences for irresponsibility. As the system is set up right now there is no accountablility, nor do I see it being addressed when reform is discussed.
