Deroy Murdock Explains How to Promote Paul Ryan’s Proposed Medicare Reform

As long as we are going to continue to provide Medicare, Romney/Ryan need to market their plan as "Medicare 2.0" or something similar. An upgrade to the current Medicare plan. And make the point that when Microsoft rolls out an upgrade to their software, no one in their right mind runs around declaring that "This will end Windows 95 as we know it!!"

When I give speeches about entitlement reform, I often make the point that there’s nothing radical about Paul Ryan’s plan to reform Medicare.

Spending will go up, for instance, not down. And the reforms only affect people under age 55. This is evolutionary change, not revolutionary change.

But my main example is that future seniors, for all intents and purposes, will have a health plan similar to what’s now available for Members of Congress. Not only the politicians, but also their staff and the entire federal bureaucracy.

I’m not the only one to think this is a powerful point. Here...
