This chart shows that Ryans' ridiculous plan to privatize Medicare would result in more dollars coming out of the pockets of the elderly. But this assumes that all of the elderly would be able to purchase private insurance with the government provided vouchers, and that is very doubtful. Many of those who depend only on a small Social Security check to live will not be able to afford any insurance at all. Ryan is just throwing the elderly under the bus so the rich and corporations don't have to pay their fair share in taxes.
