Ernie Dumas has done it again. He explains how the Republicans will use deceit to wreck Medicare and Medicaid, in part by setting up an insurance system similar in many respects to the “Obamacare” they loathe. Read it. Ignore it.

It’s on the jump.

Talking Points Memo has a similar analysis of Ryan’s plan to cripple and eventually end the medical programs.
