to AllYouPeopleNeedToKnow - the Ryan plan is voluntary. You can either stay in traditional Medicare or opt for private insurance. You have a choice unlike the current setup under O-care.
Also, as far as Akin is concerned, he will probably stay in the race just to cost the Repubs the Senate cause he will be mad at them for abandoning him. Anyone dumb enough to make the statement he made on rape is dumb enough to not see the forest for the trees. I don't know if this is true or not but I read the the Dems spend $1.5MM to actually help this idiot win the primary. Now I can see why.
