Ryan Votes Against SS/Medicare Recipients - Again

In the aftermath of the news that Social Security recipients will not be receiving a cost-of-living increase next year for the first time in 35 years, the Congressional House stepped up to the plate and overwhelming passed (406-18) a freeze on Medicare Part B Premiums.

Rep. Paul Ryan was one of just thirteen Republicans to vote against the Medicare Premium Fairness Act (HR3631), a bill to provide for the application of a consistent Medicare part B premium for Medicare beneficiaries in a budget neutral manner for 2010. In other words, HR3631 would ensure that the poorest seniors paying for Medicare through their SS benefits would not see and increase in their premiums next year.

Seniors should expect no excuses from the cold-blooded Ryan. But when will 1st congressional district residents stop holding this insurance racketeer harmless for his positions against the elderly and the economically disadvantaged?

No word yet from his media enablers in Janesville on his Medicare premium vote.
